    Great recipe that consistently yeilds great results Make sure heavily flour pan so it doesn’t stick regardless if you are using a “non stick” pan And lastly, my cake takes about 1hour and 20min in my oven( results mt vary)

    Mine did not get dark like the picture and it was hard to get out of the pan despite greasing the pan and using a nonstick pan.,....Really good cake, did not need glaze because it was nice and sweet. Great with green tea. I had a piece while it was still warm...cut oven is calibrated so 325 is at 325 it took 115 minutes.

    This was my third time cooking the pound cake, I reduced by nearly half the sugar and it came out perfectly. Next I will reduce the amount of butter to see if it will still come out great! My family loves it so will make it again for sure

    The cake was so delicious and moist. My family really enjoyed it. I added raisins to the mixture and folded it in right before putting it in the oven. I will be trying this recipe again!!

    Great. I have made it about 5 or 6 times. I used buttermilk after the first time. It was great.

    I made this cake tonight for a dessert to Sunday night's dinner. AMAZING!!! I had a darker pan, so cooked it on 300 for an hour and ten minutes. It's light and buttery, and so delicious!!! This will be a regular!

    The cake was very moist and tasted good. I thought the 2 teaspoons of lemon flavoring was a bit too much. I am definitely going to make this again and put 1 teaspoon of lemon flavoring and some vanilla extract and maybe an extra teaspoon of butter flavoring. Very good recipe.

    This cake was so moist and good, just perfect. Everyone in my house talking about it. While it was still warm I poured a 5 flavor glaze on it using sugar, water, vanilla extract, Almond extract, butter extract, Rum extract and coconut extract. I topped it with a little power sugar. I’ll be keeping this recipe around for years to come. Thanks for sharing it.

    This pound cake was great! I used 2 loaf pans instead of a bundt pan and it baked for longer than 1 hour and ten minutes until the tops were browned. The cake did stick to the bottom of the pan even though I sprayed them generously. I may use parchment paper and spray next time.

    Oh my goodness this is the fist cake I have EVER made from scratch! I was soooooo nervous, but it wasn't that hard, no more box cake for me. I accidentally (on purpose) got some extra batter on my finger too, and oh my goodness I turned into a little girl needing to scrap the bottom of the bowl. My cake looks exactly like the picture, while still in the pan. Unfortunately my cake never fell out of the pan. I even let it sit inverted on the plate for over a hour.....NOTHING. I thought I greased the pan extra extra but I guess not. It still tastes as good as my grandmas. I'm going to try it again for New Year's! Thank you for this DELICIOUS recipe.

    Amazing! i was out of lemon extract and Sprite. So I used seagram's ginger ale soda instead. my bundt pan was non stick I believe, but I greased it with Pam's Baking Spray. which helped it slide out easily after letting the cake cool a bit . I also lined my rack with foil. The cake is so so soft and moist but yet heavy :) I topped the cake with a thin cinnamon sugar glaze which gives the bottom a candied flavor. Even though I didn't use the all of the correct ingredients I will still recommend it . Half of the cake is gone already after 1 night lol

    I made this cake June 17, 2018. Good recipe turned out great. The only issue I had was some of the cake stuck to the center of the pan making it difficult to release and some of the cake remained.

    The cake was an epic failure for my. The cake batter looked good until I added the soda. I’m not the best baker so I’m sure it’s something I didn’t understand. I also sprayed too much cooking spray in the pan. The cake was a soggy mess and gummy. Oh well I’ just stick to doctoring up box😀
