This is a very nice loaf cake for any occasion. It is SO tasty. I have had the recipe for years, don't know where it came from. Glace cherries are candied cherries that you buy in the baking section of the store

Very dense cake, made pretty loafs, nice cherry color inside when cut. Next time I might add a bit more almond extract, as it could have been a bit stronger for me, and maybe some almonds on top, just to pretty up the outside a bit. A very nice cake.

This pound cake recipe would make good bricks. Add 1 teaspoon baking powder & at least 1/2 cup milk or cream to make it edible. Bake @ 350`F for 50-60 minutes (toothpick clean).

This turned out terribly! I followed the instructions exactly, but my cake came out very dark with a unattractive peaked and pitted top. I'm not sure what when wrong. I haven't tasted it yet, so I hope it is edible.
