These little cakes have wonderful characteristics...a soft and tender crumb with a very crunchy exterior. The beauty is that there is really no need for an electric mixer. I mixed the batter by hand and had them in the oven in no time. My husband expressed repeatedly about how fresh these tasted compared store-bought. The pared down recipe is also a bonus. It's a toss up between this and Realtor's Little Lemon Pound Cake for 2. The one thing I am sure is that the most mediocre dinner shines when the finality is a delicious dessert.

AWESOME!!! I made these in four square muffin tins and they came out perfect!! I absolutely loved the crunchy top edges, so yummy!! This is the perfect size for my family!! I then cut the cake in half, added a scoop of vanilla ice cream and some sliced strawberries for an awesome dessert. This is going into my keeper book and will be made many times more!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for PRMR!!

I tried this yesterday. I love that it was just enough for the 2 of us. Although if I ever get a Bundt pan I'm gonna want a full recipe cause this cake was just what I was looking for and my Cowboy is already asking when I'll be making it again.

It's a conundrum--make the just-right small size, or have plenty of this delicious cake? After tasting it, I'm glad I doubled it. The flavor and texture are lovely. The cake has that dense, soft texture you want in a pound cake, and the outside has this surprising little crunch, similar do the caramelization that happens with an upside-down style cake. Very easy to put together and cook time was very close--my oven took 45 minutes for the doubled recipe in a loaf pan. Thanks for this recipe--my boys are going to go crazy for it.

This is ideal for me as I am only one person :) I love it as much as I do the lemon version.

I had some sour cream I needed to use up and this was perfect. It's so moist and very delicious. I couldn't get enough. I like the fact that the recipe makes one small loaf so there won't be leftovers all week. That said though, I just had to make another one when I bought a new container of sour cream. Thanks for sharing.

Easy and perfect for 2. I used Almond extract and used 4 muffin tins as my pan. Great treat without the leftover guilt. Made for PRMR.

Made for Every Day is a Holiday. This is a nice little pound cake. While it's nice to have leftovers, there are times when I don't want a lot of extra dessert hanging around. Thanks for posting this Realtor!
