Much better than the standard pound cake, I got the recipe from a great-aunt, over 40 years ago.
1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour a 8×4 inch loaf pan.
2 In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add sour cream and eggs.
3 Add flour and pinch of soda, mix well. Pour into a 8×4 inch loaf pan.
4 Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean.
