ooouuhh this was so good and easy to make. We especially loved the crumb and will definitely make this more frequently since it keeps well in the freezer for those unexpected guests. Although we have a sweet tooth around here, we're not sugarholics, so reducing the sugar by 1/2 cup might work better for us. Hopefully it won't affect the texture. Thanks for posting.

I've always had such a hard time successfully making cakes that I've resorted to cake mixes for the last several years. My cakes usually turn out flat and just kind of blah. But THIS cake came out wonderfully! Fluffy, high, with a lovely even, fine texture. And the flavor is to die for! A rich, buttery vanilla...not overly sweet. I served it tonight with sugared blueberries, strawberries, and red raspberries and whipped cream, and it was a huge hit. The cake is completely gone! Thank you, MizzNezz!

This was the perfect dessert-- everyone loved it, even those who don't normally like sweets. I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and made a lemon glaze that I poured on top while it was still warm. It's very rich, but completely worth it! We had it with a cup of coffee and fresh berries.

Broke out the hand-held rotary beaters for this one! Really great while still warm from the oven. It firmed up a bit more after cooling. Very sweet, I like a little lemon zest added to the batter for more flavour. I made strawbeery shortcake with it but it's also very good toasted and buttered for breakfast or late night snack!

This recipe ,ade the most beautiful cake appearance wise, but the taste of the cake was bland and flavorless. The texture was drym but with ice cream, it was better. I'll try it again, but I'll adda little more flavor to boost the taste.

I followed this recipe exactly and was disappointed by the blandness of the cake. It's an okay cake but not great. Sorry!

Wonderful Cake. I've made this thrice now and it's never failed me. The last time I made it was for my son's birthday and topped it with chocolate sauce!! Yummmmmm. Thank you MizzNezz :)

This was a very light pound cake. Delicious, not too sweet. My suggestion is...get some heavy whipping cream...whip it till it's stiff, add sliced mangos or peaches, strawberries, bananas or fruit of your choice...mmmmmmm
