    First time making pound cake, and it overflowed ... guess I was wrong in thinking it was a 12x5 pan! I did think it was odd that it filled all the way up to brim as I suspected it would rise a bit (and it did). 😂 Regardless, cake is tasty! Check to make sure you have right size pan and enjoy this easy recipe.

    Followed the recipe to a ‘T’. Turned out really well - moist, soft and tastes great warm with whipped cream (coco whip).
