Okay, I have never had a cake fall on me, but this one fell completely and if it wasn't just for my husband and myself I would have been really upset. Luckily I let me husband know ahead of time that I was experimenting, but still this is horrible. The amount of liquid in the recipe confused me to begin with, but I was willing to try something different for a more spongy pound cake. Big mistake. The runny batter was a red flag, but I decided to see how it would turn out. I think I'm going to pull out my tried and true pound cake recipe, because this one was horrible. Zero stars if I could.
I made this yesterday. I must have beaten the ingredients too much or too little. It came out rubbery spongy. It tasted like a custard sponge. Fortunately I tasted it a few hours before I was going to serve it and ended up buying a pound cake.
Wonderful! I used Splenda and blackberries and ended up with a soft, rich, buttery good cake.
