    Delicious!!!😋I’ve made this cake several times, the best hostess gift ever & so easy! I only use 2 cups of sugar and bake at 350 for 1 hour & 10 minutes....PERFECT!!! Sometimes I put icing/frosting on it and sometimes I don’t, depends on how I feel!😄

    What more can I say? There isn't a crumb left! Made this morning and gone by evening! After reading other reviews I omitted one cup of sugar and it was excellent. :)

    Very tasty I cut back the sugar to 1.5c and added almond flavor and vanilla really tasty what I will say is that 325 temp was too high for an hour and half bake time it was crusty on top next time I’ll lower bake temp by a little and use smaller pan delicious though

    I could only taste sugar and eggs, not the butter, not the cream cheese. I added only 1.5C of sugar, but was still too sweet.

    Excellent pound cake - fine, moist crumb. I added a few drops of pure almond extract; the flavor was wonderful. It was easy to mix up; just note that the batter filled the mixing bowl, almost overflowing. I baked it in a convection oven; took an hour and 15 minutes.
