Sour Cream Pound Cake

  • 1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, soft
  • 1 1/2 cups Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Zest of 1 orange, no white bitter pith
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Praline Topping

  • 1/2 cup firmly packed Dixie Crystals Dark Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
