Have you ever had one of those moments in your life when you think, crap, I'm officially an adult now? I still think of myself as a pretty cool chic, stuck around the age of 22. Then something happens when I'm like...whoa...I'm a adult. bummer.
My first 'adult' moment was when I grounded the teenager (he was 10 then) because he didn't bring his books home from school like he was told 2 times before. And he had a test the next day. (my dad is laughing now)
I've had several of these moments, but you're thinking...um, what about a poundcake???
I coached jr. high cheerleading at my alma mater for two years. And for christmas one year, one of the girls gave me a poundcake. And I was like, whoa, I'm an adult. A mom baked me a poundcake. I received a poundcake as a gift. Aren't you supposed to give poundcakes to seasoned, experienced teachers??
But OMG...it is THE BEST POUNDCAKE EVER. I had to have the recipe. And now it is a staple in our family. I cooked one tonite. It is LOVE..whether it is eaten plain, or with strawberries & whip cream. Good for breakfast, or anytime of the day/night. And I love it when it's a little crunchy on the outside. And it makes your house smell yummy!
So here is the recipe given to me by Suzanne McAdoo....this might be just a normal 'everybody has this recipe' poundcake. But I think it's pretty awesome.
1 box Duncan Hines Butter Recipe Golden
8oz sour cream
1/2 c. sugar (sometimes I use Splenda and you can't even tell!)
1/2 c. oil
Mix together with mixer. Bake in a greased bundt pan on 350 degrees for 45mins.
