This is the recipe my mother, always used and we think it’s the best. It’s so moist!
- 3 cups granulated sugar
- 2 sticks butter, softened
- 6 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup sour cream
- 3 cups Wonder cake flour, sift before measuring
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream together sugar and butter, add the eggs one at time; mix after each addition.
Into a separate bowl, sift sifted flour, salt and soda.
Add sifted dry ingredients to batter; alternately with the sour cream; mix well, but do not overbeat.
Add the vanilla. Pour into a greased tube pan with parchment paper liner.
Place in a cold oven. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes (or until cake tests done) at 350 degrees.
Allow to cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pan.
