and so one thing lead to another...

I was in Sam's Club on Monday. My favorite thing to buy at Sam's Club? Well behind gasoline, it is strawberries and blackberries.

The strawberries were huge. Seriously. They were like the size of a small apple. The blackberries were okay, not the best, but good enough. So on Monday night, when I got home from class, I had a bowl of berries. While I was eating these berries, I thought to myself, I sure wish I had some pound cake to go with these berries.

So, one thing leads to another and voila...

On Tuesday afternoon, I made Saint Paula's (Paula Deen that is...and I'm not sure on the Vatican's stance, but I've decided to give her Sainthood) Sour Cream Pound Cake. I found the recipe and really she has 4 different recipes for Pound Cake in my cookbook: Cream Cheese, Chocolate Cream Cheese, Sour Cream and Chocolate Sour Cream. I wanted to make just a good old Southern sour cream pound cake, I couldn't believe that I had all the ingredients...What luck! Honestly, I think discovering that I actually had 3 cups of Cake Flour (that was still in date no less) may me feel more like a grown-up that paying the monthly mortgage ever has!

Anyway, it had to cook FOR-EVAH (90 minutes), but it was so worth it. It is super yummy and it makes my bowl of berries really sing. Or maybe that was me singing for joy. Yum yum yum yum YUUUUUM!
I think it is called pound cake because it will only cause you to a gain a pound, right? Hello? Seriously? That's not how it works? Now you tell me!
