First time making this..was delicious! Will add more extract next time to bring out more flavor. Added a glaze as well. Big hit with the family and friends.
It was so simple to make right to the point thanks alot my kids enjoyed it
This is the BEST pound cake ever!!! You will not be disappointed at all. I even used regular all purpose flour and it worked out just fine:) When I made the first pound cake during Christmas, it was gone in 24 hours. I made another one the next day. It is great with or without a glaze. I did make a glaze--absolutley delicious!!!
That is why this cake has 5 stars--I give it a 10:)
