Southern pound cakes are rich in tradition. Paula, like most Southern families, has a pound cake recipe from her Grandmother Paul that has been handed down from generation to generation. Her memories of summer picnics always included Grandmother Paul’s Sour Cream Pound Cake served in one form or another –buttered and toasted on the grill, cut and layered in a fancy trifle dish or sliced and served alongside a big bowl of sliced Georgia peaches steeped in a little sugar!
Sinfully buttery and oh-so-moist, a pound cake is the perfect base for summer’s bounty of fresh fruits, berries and even herbs. Try one of Paula’s favorite pound cake recipes below and let us know how you top your pound cake!
