    Delicious! I will definitely be making it again. Just as the recipe says, it took 75 minutes in the oven to bake. Loved it!!

    whewww... it is so good.... my cake stuck to the pan but it's ok because I'm going to put a vanilla glaze on top of it. It still came out super good! I tried putting the cake pieces that were stuck back on the cake, which is why it looks crazy lol the bottom of my cake cracked as well

    I always hesitate to make pound cake because I often find them to be too dry. This is the extreme exception. It’s super moist with a great texture and as a bonus it tastes like butter!! I had no trouble getting it out of the pan. However, it was too much batter for my standard size bundt pan. If I had added all of the batter, I’m certain it would have overflowed in the oven. I withheld about 2/3 of a cup and it was perfect. Make it, you won’t be disappointed.

    Perfect the first time. The second time I may have kept it in the oven too long but it was still pretty good.

    Best pound cake I have ever made and it really does taste better the next day. My husband, children and grandsons raved about it. It is a keeper for sure.
