This is fantastic! I used lemon extract instead of vanilla and could not be happier with it. Thank you so much for posting:)

This cake is wonderful, the sugar could be cut down some but the overall taste and texture are the best of any pound cake recipe I have tasted. It reminds me of a Sara Lee pound cake. Also, this recipe is perfect for an Easter Lamb cake, not dry at all. This will easily make 2 cakes. Enjoy!
