    Meryl's Note:

    Very moist and fluffy with a delicious taste. I like the fact that it has much less butter than typical pound cakes. In addition, I lowered the fat even more by using nonfat plain yogurt instead of sour cream and it came out great.

      This recipe is moist. Used plain yogurt. Good tasting. I sliced it up and wrapped it and placed in the freezer for individual servings.

      A fluffy and very tasty pound cake. As suggested I have used low-fat yogurt and it woked perfectly. It makes this pound cake so light and fluffy. The taste of vanilla, together with the flavors of cinnamon are completed by semi-sweet chocolate. It is delicious. Use a chocolate of good quality, leave at least some bigger pieces and you will be surprised how this chocolate pieces will melt in your mouth. And it adds a wonderful texture to then soft cake. I wished I would have had some vanilla sauce or ice cream with this pound cake, but I will definitively have some next time. And yes, I will make this cake again.

      Have had this in my cookbook for ages and finally got around to giving it a go. I used yoghurt as suggested, but used choc chips as that was all I had on hand. Delicious, melt in the mouth, light and tasty. I wish I had tried this sooner.
