Sour Cream Pound Cake

Normally I'm not a pound cake fan, but this is my exception. This pound cake is more and more delicious by each passing day. On the third or fourth day it was absolutely delicious served with a bowl of fresh strawberries and whipped cream. If you can manage to have a bit of patience, let it sit for a day or two, at least after initially trying a slice. It just gets better and better.
