This is a great basic cake recipe with a crusty top. It's easy to customise with chocolate, fruit or decorations. Great as a coffee cake or with ice cream.
This is a delicious traditional pound cake recipe which makes 2 cakes when baked in loaf pans (recipe doesn't really specifiy what kind of pan - one assumes a loaf pan since it is a "loaf" cake" - yes?). Wonderful cake (even with butter substituted for the Crisco), but keep in mind, it is a recipe for TWO CAKES when done in loaf pans (loaves) which is not mentioned in the recipe. Half recipe for one loaf - which is what I do. - 18 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
