Moist Lime Sour Cream Cake

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

Adapted slightly from Mad Hungry Cravings, this tangy pseudo-pound cake is tender and moist, with a delicate sweetness from honey and a nutty note from spelt flour. Simple enough for mid morning coffee and elegant enough to dress with frozen yogurt and berries for dessert!

Ingredients

    3/4 cup salted butter, room temperature
    3/4 cup sugar
    3 large eggs
    1 cup sour cream (full fat or light, NOT fat free)
    1/4 cup wildflower honey
    zest of 1 lime
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 tbsp Grand Marnier (optional)

    2 tbsp fine cornmeal
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp Kosher salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 9" springform pan.
Beat the butter and sugar together for 3 minutes, until very pale and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating 1 minute after the last egg is added.
Beat in the sour cream, honey, lime zest, vanilla and Grand Marnier.
Add the flours, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt; beat to incorporate thoroughly.
Spread in the prepared pan and rap on the counter to evenly disperse air.
