    One of the BEST pound cakes I've ever made! Very moist and delicious. I added 1 pkg instant lemon pudding along with 1 tsp lemon juice to the batter, and it was fabulous! Thanks for a great recipe! :o)  -  01 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is delicious. The ingredients don't list salt, but since I didn't have self rising flour, a substitute is to add baking powder and salt to all-purpose flour, which is what I did. No additional salt was required though. The only thing I should have done differently is keep it in the oven maybe 5 minutes less because the outside got a little too dark; other than that...perfect! Thanks Rhonda!  -  25 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was very good. I didn't have self rising flour so I used all purpose and added 1/2 tsp. of baking soda. Cake came out great. I also don't like lemon, so I added Tsp of Orange and a Tsp of Vanilla. Wonderful Flavor.  -  09 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
