  • 1/2 c. soft butter
  • 1/4 c. shortening
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar

Cream butter and shortening. Gradually add sugar, beat well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beat after each. Combine flour and baking powder and add to creamed mixture, mix well. Add sour cream and beat for 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in extracts. Pour batter into greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 325° for 50 to 60 minutes. Cool.

Very good, Member TippiM

Not sure if the sour cream flavor came through, but this still is a good cake. Density is just right. Baking directions are spot on (and I made it in my GE toaster oven). Only thing is it didn't say when to remove from the pan. I loosened the sides immediately after removing it from the oven, and a couple of minutes later tried taking it out of the pan--and some stuck. So maybe you need to let it cool a bit (I was afraid of its sticking even worse). Not a real sweet cake--you definitely have to add ice cream/berries to fully enjoy this, otherwise, it's just another cake. But I'll have to see about the sour cream; I'd have liked a more pronounced flavor. But do try this. I'm glad I did, and will make again.
