I thought this was a great pound cake! I also use two smaller loaf pans as Pattikay did. Baked for about 1 hour 15 mintues. My BIL grapped one of the loaves and ran and we've been really enjoying this with coffee. Thanks so much!

Very nice pound cake, with a light but rich flavor. I made this in two 8-inch loaf pans and served with strawberries and ice cream. Thanks for posting!
