This is how a pound cake should be, dense, heavy, yummy. I didn't change a thing, made the recipe exactly how Junebug put it down. I did take her tip and beat each addition thoroughly, although I didn't have to worry about my arm falling off since I used my wonderful Kenwood mixer. We went to visit cousins for the weekend and I took this pound cake as well as some chocolate mousse. Served the mousse on a slice of the cake, and the sound of happy people could be heard through the house!

Tasted even better the day after I made it. Topped it with sour cream glaze.

This was very good but my family didn't like it better than my regular pound cake recipe. It had a nice texture but my other recipe is very dense and more rich. I used my Pampered Chef bundt pan and it was a good size.
