    Boy oh boy does this pound cake have a ton of flavor! I really was surprised there was such a difference in flavor by using only brown sugar but it was there and everyone in the family enjoyed this cake. One little thing about the baking - using a glass pan as I did might not mean a reduction in temperature to 325F. I found that I had to bake it 65 minutes to get the center finished but by that time the outside was browned more than I like. I think next time (probably next weekend!) I'll use the 350F temp and bake 50-55 minutes. The texture is wonderful in the center with a moist consistency and is perfect with fresh strawberries in their own syrup over the top. Found and made for Photo Tag.

    I opted to add to my plan for DH's family & bake something to accompany their X-Mas gifts. I agree w/HokiesMom that the brown sugar adds a "ton of flavor". Altho I made the recipe as written, I did chg the presentation. I wanted single servings vs a loaf I'd have to slice, so I used my ramekins. I was afraid to do so, but now know ... If you fill the ramekins 2/3 full w/batter & bake them 40 min, you'll get 9 individual servings cooked to perfection & they pop right out of the ramekins when greased w/butter & floured. I filled them roughly half full & got 11 individual servings, so DH & I devoured the "bonus servings" as a taste test. Thx for posting this recipe to share w/our family for the 2012 holidays. :-)

    I'm a seasoned cook and baker and have used Domino products all of my life. However, this recipe is terrible. I followed the directions to the last detail, but the cake had a crusty outside with an inside that did not resemble a pound cake. I had to throw it away because my family didn't like the cake. I even wrote my concerns to Domino in hopes that I'd get some advice. I received a cryptic response but heard no more. My family and I were very disappointed.
