Susan, this made a very large bundt cake that is delicious. The thing I like most about it is, it is not too sweet. And the texture is perfect. I was worried at first because I did not have any self-rising flour so I put out the cry for help on Q&A and we came up with mixing baking powder with regular flour. It definitely worked because the cake came right to the top of the bundt pan. Also, I only had 1 tbsp of coffee and used 1 tbsp decaf to make up the two. In spite of that, I ended up with a wonderfully light and delicious cake. Thanks for the recipe.I should also mention that the cake was perfectly done at 45 minutes.

I followed the recipe exactly, but the cake came out kind of dry for a pound cake. It had a mellow flavor too, not as butterscotch as I was hoping. I thought about jazzing it up by poking it with some kind of syrup, maybe rum based, but pound cakes are so sinful as-is, I figure I'll just have to keep looking for a recipe that suits me better. It was still a good cake, very nice with a cup of tea, but it wasn't as decadent as I'd expect a pound cake to be.

I was so disapointed! I don't know what happenned. I followed the recipe to a T, I didn't change any ingredients. The cake had no flavour to it, I tasted it on 3 different days thinking the cake needed the flavors to blend in together.
