    This is a divine recipe. I doubled the recipe and made it into glazed loaves instead of one cake and extras froze beautifully. We loved it just as much without the bananas foster sauce, though that was delightful. The glazed cake was really good served with macerated fresh peaches and berries. Always check pound cakes at least 15 minutes before suggested time and know your oven. Baking times vary widely. Will definitely make again.

    No fair adding extra rum or banana liquer on Mardi Gras Day, but you may feel free to add extra bananas as they are healthy and full of potassium. Ha.

    I have made the Lemon Pound Cake version several times, getting rave reviews. While warm, I prick cake with wooden pick and pour on a glaze made of 1 cup powdered sugar mixed with the juice of 1 lemon. I agree with nolegatormom to check the cake before the suggested time.
