"I made this cake for our family lunch last sunday and it was a great success. I added cubes of saut?ed apples and used brown sugar in place of white sugar, and oil instead of butter."

"Just made this pound cake this afternoon. My husband and I loved it! The sparkling cider gives the pound cake a nice light flavor. Followed the recipe as is except I added 3T of extra all purpose flour for high elevation."
