      Delicious cake. The New Recipes from Moosewood Restaurant collection only calls for 2 tsp baking powder and calls for mixing in 2 cups of flour, then the milk/extract and then adding remainder of flour. I did it all with my kitchen aid mixer and it came out moist and with a lovely texture. I do use the Cherry Almond variation, substituting almond extract, reducing the milk to .5 cup, adding 1 cup ground toasted almonds with the flour, and folding in 1.5-2 cups of sour cherries into the batter at the end. Everyone loves it.

      This turned out really good!I have never seen a cake rise so high.I was half expecting it to fall some.But, it did not.It has got such a good taste.It came out of the pan just perfect.My mother had been wanting me to make a true pound cake.Well when I made this one today, she told my whole family about it and they all want the recipe!I took a couple of peices to one of my aunts and she thought that it was one of the best cakes that she has ever ate.I think that is pretty high praise .She used to work in a bakery at a grocery store.So, I am sure that she has made alot of cakes.

      This recipe is missing the salt. There should be a half-teaspoon of salt.
