    This cake was really good and I liked the custard sauce also. I would make it again.

    The pound cake was excellent and moist! I didn't care much for the custard sauce but my husband loved it. Would be a great cake for a holiday or family occasion. Super easy to make!

    This cake was simple to prepare and came out moist and delicious - some liked the custard sauce (warmed up) but most enjoyed the cake by itself. I think it would be wonderful for a special occassion and keeps well. I wouldn't change a thing about the recipe.

    This is a great recipe. Although the cake was a bit too sweet for my tasting, I will definitely make it again with less sugar next time!

    I made this pound cake as a simple base for strawberries and flavored balsamic syrups. I don't usually go crazy for pound cake, but we loved this recipe. It was light and moist and very flavorful. We especially loved the crusty top that forms. I won't make this recipe to eat alone, but I will definitely do the strawberry/balsamic syrup combo again. I did not make the custard sauce.

    LOVE this moist, dense pound cake. The top crust is perfect. Made it for a New Year's party and it was a big hit.

    My high expectations were not met with this recipe. I gave it two stars because it didn't fall and it browned nicely. I reduced the sugar to 2 cups and it was still too sweet. I love a delicately flavored pound cake with a balance tilted toward the butter, not the sugar.

    I loved this recipe! Although at the last minute I realized that I didn't have any vanilla extract so I used lemon extract instead and it gave it a great flavor! Also made the custard and again used the lemon extract and it was sooo good! Will definitely make again...
