I prepare the cake, and I like the result but I have to say that is a lot of sugar... Maybe I cup or even a half cup of less sugar... is too sweet, and I used to eat this kind of cakes with a sweet sauce... so for me sugarless will be really nice..
I am a very picky cake critic and I just loved this cake. Crunchy on the outside and like a sponge cake on the inside. excellent. I put lemon drizzle on top.
I made this recipe when we had guests over and served it with berries and vanilla ice cream. The berries were frozen, so once they had been defrosted, they produced a nice syrup which I drizzled all over the pound cake. My only complaint is that it was slightly dry. I think my oven just cooks faster, so next time I'll cook it a little less. The company loved it despite my opinion! :)
Anything Paula Deen cooks in good!!! I saw this episode also. I almost ate my TV!
