Magnificent and moist. I made the 12 serving size in a loaf pan for a higher cake. Added 1 diced apple and 3/4 cup of black walnuts that I harvested this Fall. Baked for just about 1 hour for the larger size. Yum, yum, yum

I was looking for a pound cake recipe for a little loaf pan that I purchased, and I came across this one... WOW! Great recipe! This is perfect for when you don't need a huge cake, but want something homemade.

The flavor was absolutely great. I did add 1/2 tsp. of lemon extract and 1/4 tsp. of real lemon juice and 1 TBS. of sour milk. A cook that I know uses the sour milk in her cakes, and she said it allows the cake to rise. She was right! This pound cake made my entire house smell like days of old - good and warm!

I googled this recipe because I wanted to make a loaf pound cake. Went to walmart & bought the freshest ingredients. It was SO GOOD that my family and a visiting cousin ate half of it before I could get it to the reunion! So I'm making 2 more in the morning!! Any suggestions on how to make this rise higher?? The slice I buy at Starbucks is twice the height. How do they DO THAT??? EXCELLENT TASTE!!!!
