"This pound cake is delicious. I've had bad luck with some other pound cake recipes but this one cooked perfectly. I followed the directions and cooked for exact amount listed. Everyone that ate it commented on how wonderful it was and asked for the recipe. This will be the only pound cake recipe I will make in the future."

"I can't figure out what i did wrong. I tasted the batter before i put the cake in the oven and it was bitter but i baked it anyway and it came out beautiful but was so bitter i could not eat it, had to throw away. I bought the buttermilk that same day. I was wondering if the baking soda was the culprit? Would appreciate any help, would love to try this recipe again, thanks"
"This was fantastic. My husband complamented many times over dinner. We served it with strawberry sauce. But enjoyed it plain better."
