It means it's a good southern pound cake. They do this islets ok if it cracks on top. In my family that's the best part of the cake I don't turn mine upside down.
I like my cake sweet so it should be perfect for me and my family. Sorry you felt the need to "trash" the recipe.
Mine does that as well. I was just reading Mary Berry tips. She suggest oven too hot or cake placed too high in oven. I think I will try lowering my rack and see. Because at 300 degrees, I wouldn't think the oven was too hot.
This is the best cake I have ever made. Super moist on the inside with a light brown crust on the outside. I didn't change anything, I think the key is to beat the cream cheese, butter, and sugar until it is light and fluffy, at least 5 minutes. It is best after refrigeration overnight. It can be dressed up with fruit and whip cream but really doesn't need anything extra. My husband begs me to make this so he can put his serving of nightly ice cream on top of it!
I should add that before making this cake, based on other reviews I cut the sugar by 1/2 cup.
great recipe , very easy and it looks delicious but its is cracked on top , what could be the reason ??
If you follow the instructions precisely, you won't go wrong with this one! It looks AND taste juuust like the picture. Only 1 piece of advice, but not totally necessary, use 2 and 3/4 cups of sugar instead of 3. It was a bit sweet, so this adjustment won't take away ANYTHING.
I have made this cake with butter and margarine. my family loves the cake either way
It is absolutely a great moist cake also very easy to make. Use this recipe often.
This is my go to pound cake. It is great plain. I sometimes add a brown butter icing! Keeps a long time. Freezes well. Have often made it in little foil pans for gifts.
GREAT flavor ! nice dense, moist cake ! and EASY to make ! It's a keeper !
the batter is great, going in the oven now, sure it will taste even better, ah, the childhood memories!
I have made really good pound cakes before but this one was incredibly silky with a thick and crunchy top crust. I served it to a guest(that I didn't know)and he couldn't believe I made it,he was convinced it was from a bakery! It was really easy to make. I will be making this for the holidays. I added 1 1/2 tablespoons of almond extract,yum!
I've made this cake many times and it is always a hit. I use cake flour and Orange extract. It's Awesome!!
This Cake was increadibly easy to make. It had been over 5 years since I last made any kind of cake from scratch! My mother use to hold the title for making the best Cream Cheese Pound Cake in our family....Ha! Now they have ask me to start making them. I had 2 things to my cakes to give it my own special twist and in 4 days made 4 cakes. Now I go home to make 2 more, one for Christmas dinner and one to hit the road with my Uncle and his Wife! Cake was soooo easy and delicious.
