Cake:

3 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cups white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon vanilla

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, white sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the sour cream, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove cake from oven and immediately prick cake all over with a wooden pick 20 to 30 times. Pour butter sauce over cake. Allow cake to cool completely as cake is very fragile when warm. Run a knife around the edges of the pan and invert cooled cake onto a serving dish. Dust with powdered sugar.

BUTTER SAUCE: Heat sugar, butter, water and vanilla over medium heat until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes. Do not boil.
