I liked this recipe a lot. My only critique is that mine came out a little darker than I would've liked with cooking it 55 minutes. Next time I probably would check it for doneness at 45 and again at 50 minutes.
The pound cake itself is outstanding. The sauce is incredible as well. Together, OMG! I did not strain/remove the strawberries from the sauce. I bought my strawberries from the farmers market and they are crazy good. I liked having them in the glaze. Making this again!
