This pound cake is incredible and completely reminds me of fall with every bite. Using sparkling apple cider in the batter and the glaze gives it a delicious and unique flavor. I love everything about it! — Nikki Barton, Providence, Utah

Where did you purchase the sparkling apple cider???

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 25, 2014

What did I do wrong????? I don't bake much with loaf pans and got one and measured it as a 9x5 pan. (my other ones were just a little bigger) It ran over and stuck to the sides and I was unable to get it out of the pan after the 10 min wait and pan was greased. It broke apart when attempting to get out of pan. It did have a wonderful flavor and will definetly make again but will try the bigger pan. Just wondered if anyone else had a problem with that size pan.

How do I adjust the baking time for smaller pans?

Also, can I double the recipe to make more smaller cakes?

This looks like a fun recipe to make.

This is such a great recipe. Cooking for an egg allergy typically means missing out on the traditional pound cakes made with many eggs, but the 3 called for in this cake made substituting with egg replacer easy and delicious!

It had a very nice taste. I wasn't sure what to expect but the flavor was really good. A couple of friends came by and they also enjoyed it.
