Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.

  • Cream sugar and butter together in a bowl until smooth. Add vanilla extract and mix. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

  • Sift flour, salt, and baking soda together in another bowl. Add to the butter mixture, alternating with sour cream. Mix well. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) until a toothpick inserted into the center of the oven comes out clean, about 2 hours.

Cook's Notes:

You can use a hand mixer, but it needs to be a heavy-duty one as the batter does get thick.

You can also bake this in 2 loaf pans for 1 1/2 hours.
