This was good, but since I did not have pound cake mix I used yellow cake mix, and it just wasn't the same. I also overcooked it slightly so for those two reasons there wasn't anything gooey about it. But it was still yummy! I have to try it with the pound and not overcook it, I'm sure it's better then.
