  • 2 sticks butter, softened

  • 1 pint raspberries, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar (powdered), sifted

What you need:


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Beat butter and sugar together until creamy. Continuing to mix, add eggs slowly. Then add sour cream, vanilla extract, and cinnamon & cardamom.
  3. Continuing to mix, slowly add in flour. Mix until everything is incorporated. 
  4. Carefully spoon batter in to bundt pan until about 3/4 full. Wipe edges of pan down. 
  5. Bake for 22-25 minutes until golden and spring back at the touch. 
  6. Carefully invert the pan on to cooling rack. 
  7. Spoon second batch in to pan and bake again. Invert and cool. 
  8. While your cakes cool: in a blender, blend raspberries until liquid. Transfer to a small bowl and mix in powdered sugar.

Sour cream keeps the cake moist, the way a pound cake ought to be.
