Gammy’s Sour Cream Pound Cake

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Last week was our beloved Gammy’s birthday (my husband’s grandmother). And although she is no longer with us, there is so much to celebrate about her, especially at Mother’s Day. Her infectious spirit, her cheerful hospitality, her love of family, her strong voice singing out her favorite hymns. Thankfully, we have more than just lovely memories about her to cherish; her legacy lives on through her recipes, graciously shared with me by my mother-and-sister-in-law.

It’s hard to pick out a favorite from among those smudged and worn recipe cards. But one of my favorites – a recipe I enjoy making for women’s events or for friends – is her Sour Cream Pound Cake. And although it isn’t particularly healthy (there’s lots of sugar and butter in there), this recipe is definitely good for the soul. Especially if it’s enjoyed over a cup of coffee with friends or family – just the way Gammy liked it!

Today, Handful of Joy is letting me share the recipe for Gammy’s Sour Cream Pound Cake! Run over and check the post out – you don’t want to miss this recipe. Yep. It’s that good.
Thanks Gammy for your love of our Lord and your keen ability to feed souls as well as fill tummies.  Happy Mother’s Day!

“Trust in the LORD, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.”

Ps. 37:3
