    This is the VERY BEST POUND CAKE RECIPE EVER!!! We like almond flavor, so I omit the vanilla extract for almond extract and it’s so darn good!

    Very good. I will eventually try the glaze that compliments it. I did not make any changes, as was suggested by the author.

    I took it to my office and it was eaten in a flash. The texture is excellent and it would be a terrific base for a fruit dessert. It took a little longer to bake though.

    I don't have a photo because I threw it out already, but this recipe isn't too bad. Wayyyy too sweet for my liking. The family loved it, I made it for dunking in fondue chocolate. Good luck getting it out of the pan, greased or not...

    A very good butter pound cake. Make exactly as stated in the recipe. No substitutions. Add one tsp lemon extract along with the vanilla extract. A real crowd pleaser. I will make it again.

    I have been making this pound cake for years! I found the original recipe in the Atlanta Journal in the early 60's, though the it was called a "whipped cream pound cake". In spite of what itis called, it's a great cake: alone, with fruit, ice cream, even frosted! And it is especially delicious toasted with butter and a morning cuppa tea or coffee. While the recipe calls f0r 1 tsp vanilla, I like to make it with 1\2 tsp vanilla extract and 1\2 tsp lemon extract.
