Aunt Emma's Peach Pound Cake

What a delightful pound cake. This recipe comes from my Aunt Emma who lives in Florida. She has always been a wonderful cook. I loved making this cake. My mom had to make one the day after I made this one. She & my dad loved it too!
1 c butter
3 c sugar
6 eggs
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 c flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 c fresh peaches, coarsely chopped
1/2 c sour cream

Cream butter & sugar until light & fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each egg.
Stir in extracts. Combine dry ingredients & add to creamed mixture on low speed. Fold in sour cream & peaches. Pour batter into greased & floured 10 inch tube pan (or use Baker's Joy). Bake at 350 degrees for 75-85 minutes. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Then remove from pan & cool on wire rack. Sift with powered sugar, if desired.
