“This is one of the best pound cakes I've ever tasted. It's simple to make, starting with a store bought mix. I often take one to work where it quickly disappears. I also use this recipe at Christmas time to make 6 small loaves for gifts, which take about 15 minutes less.” - by patsy
Original recipe yields 1 - 10 inch Bundt pan
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
- 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.
- 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.

"I take my baking very serious. I'm usually a cake mix snob. I had to try this because I wanted to experiment. This was, surprizingly wonderful. I made mine alittle diff. because I didn't have some th..." See moreings on hand. I used oil instead of butter(I'm sure butter makes it better.) I omitted the lemon extract for 1/2 tsp of almond extract and 1 TBL of good van.(That's what gives pound cake the traditional lb.cake flavor.) Also, I only had french vanilla cake mix. I also used buttermilk instead of the 2/3c of water. You have to make this cake a day ahead to appreciate it. Do not eat it warm because it still tastes like cake mix. Trust me, next day!! I also wouldn't ice it or glaze it unless you like you cake super sweet. We found it was wonderful with a cup of coffee. This would make a great base for s.c coffee cake. I think I will use this as my new lb. cake recipe-because it is so easy. However, next time, I will use butter and butter cake mix. I think that prob. makes it! You can still use oil- it was still great! Just use butter flavored cake mix."
"Great cake, tastes just like homemade. Use Duncan Hines yellow BUTTER cake mix, a little more flavor and beat 5 minutes at the end. The BUTTER yellow cake mix makes a better cake than just the regular..." See more yellow cake mix. I have experimented a lot with this recipe and it is very versatile. As a pound cake, I top it with any type of icing. It also makes a great sheet cake. I use this same recipe to make chocolate sour cream pound cake, using Duncan Hines BUTTER chocolate cake mix , eliminating the lemon flavor and adding more vanilla. Top with chocolate or white buttercream icing."
"This cake is wonderful!!! I made a few alterations though. I changed the cake mix to Devil's Food, omitted the Lemon extract and added in a package of chocolate chips. The cake baked very well and ..." See morethe chocolate chips held together but melted into the cake at the same time. To die for! I bake regularly and people always love it but I've never had every single person who got some to ask for the recipe. Even the men!"
