Very disappointed in this recipe. The cake did have a good texture and was very pretty, but it tasted nothing like Sara Lee's cake. It smelled devine, but the taste was very blah and heavy. My husband who adores pound cake was very disappointed. Will not make again.

I quite enjoyed this recipe - I am a HUGE fan of Sara Lee pound cake, and while this one is not exactly the same, it is still great. I now make it and serve with fresh fruit and whip cream as a summer dessert.

This was a great receipe. The test was right on but I think I may have done something wrong. As the pound cake cooled it started to crack on top. What did I do wrong. Thanks again for a really good receipe. Jack24
