county fair cake: The best sour cream pound cake recipe

county fair cake

I am home from a whirlwind 36-hour trip to Bellport, NY over the weekend. Dan manned the homefront, while I slipped off to an exhibition about my great-great-grandmother at an historical society in Bellport. I'm still sifting through photographs and trying to digest my weekend. Not to mention the enourmous amount of recovery that seems necessary after a short weekend away. 

In the meantime, God must have heard my pleas for relief as cool 70-degree winds are blowing through my windows this morning. This is my kind of weather. 

The weather break also meant that I had the motivation to fire up my oven and bake something. Emma, slightly dramatic and upon her first bite into the cake, "I haven't had something homemade of yours in YEARS!" 

So while I spend the day recovering, do yourself a favor and revisit this post. There just might be a county fair cake in your future today, too. 

The BEST pound cake recipe I've ever tried. It has a crispy crust and is so moist on the inside. Wins at the county fair each year so it HAS to be good!

  1. The weather this morning is simply heavenly! I actually woke up kinda cold. Seems like baking weather to me. I may just have to give that recipe a whirl.

  2. Perfect timing for this posting. My son will be 14 this Friday and he asked me for a cake that he can sprinkle raspberries on top. Our raspberry canes are exploding this week.I’ve already made two batches of jelly. I believe your county fair cake is in order. Thanks for the recipe!

    I am in MD also and totally know what you mean about the weather…just beautiful!

  3. Wow! I live on Long Island, and I just read the Historical Society’s website about your relative. Fascinating! It must have been a wonderful weekend.

  4. Oooo…so simple and sounds so good! I’m hoping to pick strawberries this week – I bet a few strawberries on the side would be yummy!

  5. Tried the cake, loved it! Super simple, so delicious. Couldbe served so many ways. I grated lemon rind into mine. Thank you for sharing such goodness!

  6. Hey Molly–this post was at the bottom of today's as a "you also might like"–but your recipe link is broken. Just a heads-up! The county fair cake is always worth the baking.
