      Ladies, this is the best “fake out” pound cake I have ever made. My mom made this first and I ate it until I cried, it’s that good! She always adds an extra egg, it just adds to the richness. I promise, you will LOVE me for this. Just don’t tell mom I gave you this recipe! estatic

      Fake out pound cake!  

      Cook Time: 1 Hour Ready In: 1 Hour 30 Minutes

      1/2 cup butter
      1 cup white sugar
      3 eggs (4 if you add the extra “mom” egg)
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1 teaspoon lemon extract

      2/3 cup water or milk (I prefer milk)
      1 (8 ounce) container sour
      1 (18.25 ounce) package
      yellow cake mix
      1 cup all-purpose flour
      1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan. (I spray mine with Bakers Secret)
      2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and lemon extract. Beat in water and sour cream. Beat in the cake mix and flour. Pour batter into prepared pan.
      3. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

      Mom makes a simple icing out of confectioners sugar, milk and vanilla extract. I can’t tell you an exact recipe, I just mix it together. Most pound cakes are not iced, but I love a bit on this one.
