If I Knew You Were Coming I'd Have Baked A Cake

Christmas time usually means cookies, but this is a wonderful cake to have on hand for drop in company. It can be made in loaf pans for gifts and is beautiful frosted with Royal Icing.
Sour Cream Pound Cake
1 cup unsalted butter
3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 eggs separated
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups regular flour
1/2 pint sour cream
Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar thoroughly. Add vanilla and salt. Blend in egg yolks one at a time, blending well after each addition. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with sour cream. Fold in beaten egg whites. Bake at 350 for 1 1/4 hours or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 30 minutes before taking out of pan.
