FANTASTIC pound cake. I only have regular sized bundt pans, and I don't think all the batter would have fit in any of them. I used a 10" tube pan, with 4" high sides. Baked til it tested done, around 1 hr., 20 mins. was perfect. I followed the recipe, except I switched step 5 and 6, doing 6 before 5. I didn't beat the flour a long time, just til it was fully incorporated, slowly adding the sifted mixture with the mixer running on low. In my cake experience, beating cake batter makes for a tough cake. I finished it off with a lemon-limoncello syrup made with 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and 1/2 cup limoncello. Simmered til sugar was dissolved. When cake was 10 minutes out of the oven, I poked holes in it, and while still in the pan, I soaked it with the lemon syrup. It came out of the pan beautifully when completely cool. I did line the bottom of the tube pan with waxed paper, and I greased and floured the pan generously. This cake has a great lemon flavor, probably one of the best I've ever tasted!
