This was the first time that I used this recipe, having used another one from this site for quite a few years. My family loves pound cake, and the addition of the cognac and orange juice was so much like how my YiaYia used to make it. I subbed 8 ounces of the butter with I Can't Believe it's Not Butter, and used egg substitute for two of the eggs; I also subbed 1/4 tsp. of almond extract for the chopped nuts because no one in my family likes nuts in their cake, but the rest of the recipe remained unchanged. After an hour, I covered the cake with aluminum foil, and I would recommend that you check the cake after an hour and a half because the edges of mine began to brown quickly. I have to say that my family ate piece after piece, it was that good! This is definitley my new vasilopita recipe.
