This is the same pound cake recipe that I have been baking for 27 years+ and it is DELICIOUS! The only changes I made to the recipe which I add with the vanilla, 1 tsp. lemon extract and 1 tsp. coconut extract. This cake is my biggest seller during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season. Thanks for posting! P.S. There is an ingredient missing after the butter and I believe it is 1/2 cup shortening.
