This is the most wonderful cake I have ever eaten. It is only the third cake I have ever made (I'm more of a pie guy). Moist and delicious. aclinemorris: try just barely mixing as you go, or mix by hand. If you over mix it becomes poofy. I sprinkled homemade vanilla sugar over mine after depanning.

Excellent recipe. Easy to make and pretty quick. Came out with outside crusty which I love. Brought to work and everyone wanted recipe. Very yummy!

This is my favorite pound cake to make! It comes out perfect every time. The texture is wonderful! Very dense, but light. I did learn to cook it in stages and to put aluminum foil over the top during the middle stage to keep it from browning too much. The one time I neglected to do this, it was kind of burned on the top. However, this could be just my oven. Also, not being a big almond flavor fan, I use vanilla flavoring instead of the almond.

What a mess I had in my oven! I only needed 1 loaf pound cake so I halved the recipe. Is this the cause for the failure? The batter was nice and thick just like other pound cakes I've made. It rose nicely for the first 30 min. and then sort of turned liquid and poured over the side of the pan, through the oven racks, and onto the bottom of my oven. I was able to slide a cookie sheet on the rack beneath and kept on a-bakin'. After another 20 min. the cake fell and appeared still liquidy. Let's let it keep baking. Another 10-15 min., I cry "uncle" and open the oven. The crisp parts I pried away from the sides of the pan tasted like a crispy cookie. The cake itself was about an inch and a half high with the texture of cornbread and very soggy. What do you think happened? I didn't sub any ingredients. Any ideas?

I have made this cake a couple times now and every time it is the best cake I've ever eaten! And with me being a big girl, that's saying something. This cake always bakes up dense but super light and delicious. The lemon and almond extract are what, I think, make this cake so fabulous. I've gotten so many compliments every time that I make it that it's almost a given that this is "my" cake and will be my addition to every party! Love it!

I am not a baker! I saw this beautiful cake and peaches and decided to try it. My family could not believe I baked this delicious cake. I have fooled all of my friends, now they think I am an experienced baker. My family and friends love this cake and always claim it is the best cake they have ever tasted. We enjoy eating it right out of the oven. I bake this recipe at least two or three times a month to give to a friend.

@smallchange, make sure you are using all purpose flour and not self rising.

This is my very favorite cake, it never fails! It makes your mouth water as it is baking. I also add vanilla! It is so good with peaches, strawberries, blueberries and the raspberry sauce. Such a nice gift to friends on special occasions. A must have for holidays!

This pound cake is absolutely amazing!! I cut the recipe in half and made it in a loaf pan and baked it for about 1 hour 10 minutes. So good!
