A delicious and moist vanilla lemon pound cake recipe that’s a crowd pleaser!


  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup sour cream (I use the full fat one, not low fat)
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 5 drops Lemon Essential Oil or 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • Extra butter or coconut oil to grease the pan
  • Standing Mixer or a Hand Mixer
  • 10-inch bundt cake pan


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix the flour and baking soda together in a bowl. In another bowl or a standing mixer bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time. Then add the flour and sour cream alternatively. Add the vanilla and lemon juice or essential oil. Pour batter into a 10-inch tube pan that has been greased and floured. Bake for approximately one hour or until the top has brown and a knife inserted comes out clean.
