This was my first try at making pound cake and it was very good! I didn't have pecans though so I used walnuts. It wasn't as heavy as I thought it would be so I was very pleased. It had a great flavor! Read More

This cake is a waste of pecans. The pecans were on top not in the cake and the cake was dense and tasted too much of eggs. Maybe some baking powder would help. Read More
