Foodie Friday

Our Hostess is Gollum

Here at the blog plantation we are on spring break so this one is easy and not as many pictures. See ya next week!

Our Shopping list:

1/2 lb. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
5 eggs
3 c. sifted flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1 c. sour cream

Cream butter; add sugar gradually.
Add eggs one at a time.
Sift flour, baking soda, and baking powder together. Add to batter.
Mix in 1 teaspoon vanilla,
1/4 teaspoon almond extract.
Add sour cream and blend well.
Pour into greased and floured 10-inch pan. (I prefer to use the large "cake liners" like cup cake liners only for cakes)
Bake at 350 degrees. About 45-50 minutes.
Cake will pull away from sides of pan when done. (unless you use a liner then you will need to use the blade of a knife to check when it is done.)

Dust with confectioners sugar and enjoy!

I make this same cake and serve mine with either fresh strawberries of fruit salad using fruit with pie filling, such as peach,then fill in with fresh fruits such as banana, grapes, apples, pineapple. Stir all together. It makes a perfect side to the cake. YUM!
