This makes the absolute perfect pound cake. It's the exact recipe that my mother in law has been using for 40 years or more! I collect bundt pans and this is the perfect recipe for the intricate patterned bundt pans that I have.
MMMM awesomee!!! I used two cups sugar and it was plenty :)
This was a good pound cake but not remarkable. I'm glad I reduced the sugar from 3 cups to 2 1/2 otherwise, it would have been too sweet. The texture of the cake was lovely, very moist but it could have been a bit richer and more flavorful. It took longer than the 1 hour 20 minutes. I used a 10" pan and it rose right to the top but never surpassed it to my great relief. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I may tweak it in the future.
Buttery and moist. I only used 2 1/2 cup of sugar and it was perfect.
This is a super moist and delicious cake. I baked it in the evening to bring to the beach in the morning. We all sat and enjoyed our coffee and pound cake for breakfast ~ it was so nice! I wouldn't change a thing, we loved it plain. Thank you for sharing this recipe Kay :)
This was very easy to make and delicious too! I liked that it wasn't overly sweet and the texture was great. Next time, I'll add some extract as other posters have suggested as the flavor could use just a little extra something. Will definitely make again. Thank you for great recipe :)
Excellant cake, texture was nice and soft, taste great... I used 1 1/2 cups splenda for baking, next time i'll use 2 cups. Took reviewers advice, added the buttenut extract with the vanilla. Great addition. This is a 5 star recipe.... thanks for posting!!!!!!!! No i'm not bonkers yet... the butternut addition of one tsp. came from PAULA DEENS recipe sight use just 1 1/2 tsps of vanilla extract.
Made this yesterday and the taste was wonderful, however mine fell right in the middle of my bundt pan. Who knows why, followed the directions as written and ingredients as well. When I inverted it onto the wire rack it looked fine. Got lots of complements. Thanks, I'll try again and see what happens.
This was absolutely delicious and I will make this often. I used egg beaters, light sour cream and almond flavoring and it came out great, thank you!
I have same family recipe but with two variations that for us makes this a spectacular treat. We also include 1t Almond extract and bake for 1 - 1 1/2 hours and for the last 15-20 min reduce heat to 250 for a crusty top
