    1. Good morning the recipes that I am able to prepare for my family and myself a very delicious and very unique. Thank you very much for your presentation of each recipe.

  1. This bread turned out perfect. Great recipe for a breakfast bread. I put butter and homemade Raspberry jam on mine-Delicious!

    1. It might Rebekah but I am not sure what the baking time would be. Your best bet would be to google sour cream pound cake cupcakes and see if there are any directions out there for baking temp and time. Good luck!

  2. I love this recipe�� this is my basic
    Go recipe when I need to make a pound cake. I sometimes add venilla,rum,coconut,lemon,& almond extract to the batter to give it an extra umph! To it. While it' warm I
    Mix lemon juice with a little half n Half and powdered sugar to drizzle over it. You can't go wrong with a cake like this! BJC.

  3. I was a little dissapointed with the recipe, I thought it was too sweet and slightly “eggy” in taste. We were not thrilled with it. Might have been better with some lemon, maybe to cut the sweetness a bit.
