Top-ranked recipe named "Old Fashioned Pound Cake"
"Very nice flavor and texture! I used vanilla and almond extracts and margerine in place of butter. (Word of advice make sure you place the cake pan on at least the middle rack and have ample room. I placed mine in the smaller oven of my double oven and it rose and touched the heating element.) I baked it in a loaf pan. Hubby enjoyed this cake also!"- mogriff1

ambiemistry 3 months agoFirst time to make it today. My husband and kids love it. Will be making this again. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
pinksocks 4 months agoI used a regular loaf pan and as a result, it developed a serious crust. It also took longer to cook completely. Next time, and I will be making it again, I will use a bundt pan. I also switched up the extracts, using 1 1/2 teaspoons almond and just a half a teaspoon of vanilla. Great flavor
mapglobal2 4 months agoDisappointed. I don't know what happened, but mine came out like a brick and was dry and tasteless. I am not an experienced baker, so I presume that I made major mistakes along the way. I'll try again and see what happens. Cheers, Michael

BreeHoldeman 1 year agoNot as lemony as I had hoped, but still a great tasting cake! I used a couple of dashes of extra sugar and at least a tablespoon of lemon juice but next time I'll be sure to add plenty more of both. I could probably make it taste lemony with a sweet lemon glaze over it. Definitely worth another try though just based on the texture!

cindijackson 1 year agoMade it last night and used almond flavor and some maraschino cherries, then baked in 8' tube pan and it turned out perfect! I'll use this recipe again for sure!
