I prepared this cake exactly as Laurie directed and came up with an excellent tasting Pound Cake! Perfect Texture and flavor with just the right amount of sweetness, I accompanied with fresh cut strawberries, a little vanilla ice cream and a dollop of freshly whipped cream! What a lovely dessert! Thank you so much for sharing, Laurie!

This recipe is easy to make and very good! I put about 3/4's of the batter in one pan, and the rest in the other loaf pan. The smaller cake i cut into 2 inch slices and used as cookies! It was so good!

Made this for our 4th of July picnic. Served it with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. When the berries ran out, people were grabbing the cake and eating it plain. Oh my, this cake is gooooood!<br/>Simple to make. You'll be proud to serve it. I wouldn't recommend it if your on a diet :) Later note- it has been decided that without this cake we will not celerate the the of July.

I made this for a fondue party I'm attending tonight (I'm bringing stuff to dip in the chocolate). I followed the recipe exactly and it is delicious!

This is one of the best pound cakes that I have been making for as long as I can remember. It is better than the Sara Lee Pound Cake in the frozen food section.The original name for this is IMPERIAL POUND CAKE, the is so old that the sheet that it was written on is old and fraying. The original recipe uses Imperial Margarine instead of butter. The results are unbelieveable, give it a try.

Buttery, moist and delish.

It was a pretty simple recipe and cooked nice( I used the silicon loaf pans-baked for 50 min). I made this cake for a co-workers birthday. It was a hit. I serverd it with fresh berries & whip cream. I have been asked to make this again for other birthdays.

I thought this was excellent, but my mom found it a bit dry and said the butter taste was overpowering (I don't think butter tastes like anything but what do I know...). It developed a crusty top which I don't find desirable. On the whole, I'd still recommend it, especially if you've never made pound cake before; it was WAY too easy :)
