Great cake. Easy, moist, with excellent crumb. I topped mine with a glaze made from some left-over apricot syrup from another cake. People described it as a super good donut. The crust was delightfully crispy and the cake was oh so good. I also cooked mine longer - 35 minutes in the last section.

Wonderful pound cake that we had topped with caramel ice-cream. I cooked my cake a little longer than the directions stated (about 1 1/2 hours) because I think my oven cooks slow. Thanks Kimke for posting this keeper that we will be having this cake again soon.
