Splenda Blend Sour Cream Pound Cake

It seems recipes have a way of spreading from one household to the next. Or in the age of the world wide web, from one blog to the next. I saw this recipe over at Lovin Life with Lea, and thought uhmmm, that sounds good. Then I found followed the link Lea had left and found the recipe over ar Recipeczar! So, we made it for church on Sunday, and added fresh strawberries. Wow, it was delicious! So, hope you enjoy!

1¾ hours 20 min prep

3 cups sifted cake flour
1 1/2 cups Splenda granular
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
6 large eggs
1 (8 ounce) carton sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees; GREASE and flour a 10-inch tube pan or a 12-cup BUNDT pan; set aside.

Combine flour, Splenda Sugar-Blend for baking, and soda in a large mixing bowl; cut butter into flour mixture with a fork or a pastry blended until crumbly, (this procedure may be done with a mixer at the lowest speed, cover mixing bowl with a tea towel to prevent spattering, I have a guard that fits on my mixer bowl-Kitchen Aid).

Combine eggs, sour cream, and vanilla in a small mixing bowl; add 1/4 of the egg mixture to flour mixture; beat on low speed of an electric mixer until blended; beat at medium speed for 30 seconds or until batter is smooth, stopping to scrap down sides of bowl; REPEAT PROCEDURE 3 times.

Spoon batter into prepared pan; Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean, cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan, cool completly on a wire rack.
