This pound Cake is delicious! I totally agree with you Marian! Usually before people even try out the original recipe they start tweaking it and then complain because it didn’t turn out! I follow new recipes to the “T,” and if it doesn’t turn out, then I’ll tweak it!!

Shannon--- you complained about this whole recipe. It needs more of this and more of that. If you have a better recipe then use your recipe. This one seems fine as is. It's been tested and reviewed by others and no one else has said it needs more eggs. 4 eggs are plenty for this recipe. It really annoys me when someone changes the whole recipe. Does anyone else feel as I do? Thanks

This cake is light and fluffy and so yummy! I had buttermilk that needed to be used and this was the perfect solution. I used my grandmother's 16 x 5 inch loaf pan from WAY back! it was the perfect size for this cake. So so good.
