Lemon Sour Cream Pound Cake
1 10-inch cake
(Printable Recipe)


    Cake
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (3.4-oz) package instant lemon pudding
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups butter, room temperature (3 sticks)
  • 2-3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 large eggs
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 2 Tbsp lemon zest

  • Glaze
  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter and flour a 10-inch tube pan. Set aside.

Sift together the flour, lemon pudding mix, salt and baking soda. Set aside.

Cream together butter, sugar and vanilla. Beat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until light and pale yellow in color. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition, stopping and scraping the sides of the bowl as needed.

Reduce the speed of the mixer and add the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the sour cream. Mix until fully combined. Stir in the fresh lemon zest by hand.

Pour into prepared pan and place in the oven.

Bake, placing a piece of aluminum foil on top to prevent over browning, if needed, for 1 hour 20 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes back clean.

Remove from oven and let cool in pan on a cooling rack for 15 minutes, then remove from the pan and let cool completely.

To make the glaze: In a medium-size mixing bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, lemon juice and butter. Drizzle over cooled cake.

  7. That looks so yummy. I rarely make anything lemon because my husband isn't fond of lemon at all. But THIS I'm going to make. I only hope to get my future DIL to come visit and help me eat it so I don't eat it all myself. LOL

  9. I made this yesterday. It was good but not very lemony. I would suggest 2 pudding mixes or maybe lemon extract instead of the vanilla. It's a good cake though.

  11. I don't have a 10inch tube pan will a bundt pan hold the batter?

    1. Just make sure to leave about an inch of the bundt pan unfilled so the cake has room to rise. You might have leftover batter.
