Sour Cream Pound Cake recipe

Today is DH's birthday and he always wants me to make this cake for him, so I thought I'd share the recipe.  Be aware that this is NOT a healthy-to-eat cake (but it tastes SOOO good!).  Try it topped with strawberries and whipped cream (the real stuff, not the junk in the freezer).

3 c. sugar
1/2 lb. butter (two sticks)
1/2 pint (8 oz.) sour cream
3 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
6 eggs
1 t. vanilla

Have all ingredients at room temperature (no substitutions).  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  

Spray a bundt pan with Baker's Joy or equivalent.  Cream butter, sugar, and sour cream together.  Add flour sifted with soda alternately with eggs.  Add vanilla.  Turn into bundt pan and bake for 1 1/2 hours.  Cool and invert on cake plate.  Enjoy!
