Nina’s recipe is published in their 1985 church cookbook. I purchased a copy because as we all know, church cookbook’s have the best recipes! As you can see, this page has taken a few spills through the years. It’s not really ‘my’ recipe although I do refer to it as such. It’s your recipe too. We share recipes through time and generations. The really good one’s like this Sour Cream Pound Cake recipe live on to be shared again and again.
