Maybe I just don't know what pound cake is supposed to taste like, but this seems really bland. It's incredibly dense and moist, but even with the extracts it leaves a lot to be desired. It might be better if it had lemon extract instead, just for more flavor and kick. I used cake flour, but I don't think that could possibly be worse than all-purpose flour?
This cake tasted too heavy in the butter. Looking for other pound cake recipes which are lower in fat content.
The recipe I got out of Taste of Home said the temperature for baking should be 300 degrees, and that is what I used. This recipe states 325 degrees. Which is correct? I live in high altitude.
