    This is a fantastic, easy recipe!! I had some strawberries laying around & an "itty bitty" pound cake seemed perfect to use them up!!! I used Splenda for the sugar & vanilla extract. Baking time was right at 30 min in a mini loaf pan. I gave my husband most of it--with sliced strawberries & fat free whipped cream. I had a small slice & couldn't believe how yummy it was!! Thank you for sharing! A small dessert for 2 is always a welcome addition to my cookbook!

    Very nice pound cake. Made half the recipe and subbed my gluten free flour to make it gluten free. Doubled the recipe and used it for half of recipe #76699. Also, I made this in a 9x13 sheet pan and baked it for about 15-16 minutes and it was perfect. Used almond extract, but will make it again and try one of the other flavors suggested in the recipe. Thanks for posting this Tgirl! Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.

    Oh man this is the recipe I have been searching for! Since I normally only cook for me and my mom and both of us arent really big eaters its hard to find a nice small treat that wont go to waste. This lasted us for 2 nights of desserts. I added vanilla and lemon extract to my cake, and it tasted great! This is just perfect!! Thanks so much for posting!

    I made this today using almond extract and it turned out sooo good! This is the texture I look for in a pound cake and I think the buttermilk was the key! I didnt have a mini loaf pan but I used a 9x5 bread loaf pan..although the batter barely covered the bottom it rose and made a long flat pound cake! But it worked:) Also, used more than 1/4 tsp of almond extract..I really wanted that flavor to stand out. Cant wait to try it with other extracts!! (I have lemon, coconut & rum left to try;)

    What a wonderful little cake. Perfect for the two of us. Baked it in a 81/2x31/2x21/2 loaf pan (holding 3 cups). Used lemon flavouring and will experiment with other flavours. It tasted great. Thanks so much for posting.
