    Came out perfect the first 2 times. Dont know what i did wrong this time; it fell. I think because i smoothed it out on top like i saw someone do to get a flatter crown? I guess it works better in a loaf pan? But i think that deflated my precious built up air????.

    Followed a tip i saw somewhere else that since there isnt any leavening like baking powder used that you have to incorporate air by first beating butter for 5 minutes and then sugar for 5 minutes. I didnt see that specified here although it does say cream butter.

    Great recipe for a traditional pound cake! If you're looking for the same texture found in store bought cakes, skip this recipe. This makes a dense, buttery cake, exactly how pound cake should be! I used half n half in place of the milk. (Just my preference!)

    Didn't really care for this pound cake. I wouldn't call it Million Dollar Pound Cake. I would call it a Penny a slice pound cake.
