    I have used this recipe for years. I have served it topped with everything from egg custard to pudding to fruit to whipped cream to ice cream, and on. Everyone loves it. It is so good served plain. It saves well and carries well. This cake is great for a holiday gift. It can go into a lunch box or it can be dressed up and served at an elegant holiday dinner. I find it to be easy to make and the ingredients are almost always on hand. What more would one want?

    This is a very good pound cake. If you have a stand mixer, it makes it easier to mix the ingredients. It took 2 hrs to bake in a gas oven. The edges came out crusty and crunchy and it taste so good. Next time I plan on using a glaze to pour on top.

    This pound cake is wonderful and rich. It is very moist and dense in the middle and is flaky on the top. The flavor is great too! You can definitely taste the almond extract. It is great served by itself or with fruit and whipped cream.

    I have used this recipe for many years, since it first appeared in SL (I can't remember the year but it was at least 25 years ago). It is best to use a stand mixer if you have one; there is a lot of mixing time and if you cut it short then your results will not be the same. Follow the instructions exactly as to times to mix and what the batter should look like. If you don't have almond flavoring then use all vanilla; I tried lemon in place of almond but did not like the taste. My best memory of making this cake is when my grandmother (born in 1894) told me that she liked it better than her own recipe !!!

    Terrific pound cake. Everyone loves it, especially our grandchildren.

    Dee-licious cake! I was afraid that it would be too dense with no leavening agents, so I added 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt and baked in two loaf pans. It's very good on its own, but made a super strawberry shortcake cake tonight! Will serve with my pineapple cream filling on it tomorrow. Sharing my pics.

    I made this cake on Sunday and it was absolutely delicious! I did alter the cooking time (only cooked for 1hr and 20 minutes) and added a half cup of buttermilk to ensure a moist cake and it was perfect! Will definitely make again!
