"This is the best pound cake I've ever had!! Will be making this many times in the future. After I removed in from the pan on a wire rack while still warm, I drizzled icing made with powdered sugar, water and vanilla over the cake. Letting the extra icing run off. Then once cooled and dry put in in my cake dome. Awesome!!!"

"I love a good pound cake. Usually I use a mix from the box. This's my first pound cake from scratch and it made me want to go back to the box again after trying this recipe.

What a waste of time. The cake is very heavy; it came out very dry and hard. Dollar Store pound cake taste better than this and it costs only a dollar."

"This is the first pound cake I have made. It turned out moist and with the great texture I was looking for. I like it with lemon extract but I want to try it with just vanilla also. I only used two cups of sugar. This is good without any fruit or whipped topping."

"Excellent pound cake recipe. I cut the sugar to approximately 2-1/2 cups. I do not have lemon extract, so I used lemon zest. I will make this again."

"Best pound cake recipe I have tried thus far. It's moist and just the right amount of denseness. The flavor is fabulous. It's great on its own but served with fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream and it's out of this world tasty. This recipe is a keeper."
