Pound Cake Challenge Week 13: Strawberry Pound Cake

Ingredients for cake:
· 1 cup butter
· 2 cups white sugar
· 5 large eggs
· ½ teaspoon strawberry extract
· ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
· 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
· ½ teaspoon salt
· ½ cup sour cream
· ¾ cup fresh strawberries 

Ingredients for Glaze, optional

· 1 cup powdered sugar
· 2 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 2 8x4-inch loaf pans.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in extracts.
In a small bowl, combine flour and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating just until combined. Stir in sour cream and strawberries. Divide mixture evenly between prepared pans.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cakes cool in pans for 15 minutes on wire rack. Remove from pans and continue to cool on wire racks.
If using glaze: Whisk together powdered sugar and milk. Pour evenly over warm cakes.
