"This is technically considered half pound cake because it calls for half the amount of sugar, flour and butter. But amazing still."

I had a bunch of strawberries to use up and this recipe was the perfect way to use them. I managed to fit it all into one big loaf pan and cooked it ten minutes longer. Came out perfect! Super yummy!
All batter could be placed into one loaf pan. Too sweet and not very flavorful.
I made this pound cake last night and thought it was excellent. I'm not sure why some reviewers thought it was too sweet - I thought it was just the right amount of sweetness. I forgot to buy the almonds so I left that ingredient out and jut put in a little more strawberry, but I didn't feel like it was missing anything. Like the other reviewers said, there is no reason why you can't fit all this in one loaf pan. It took about 10 extra minutes for it to cook that way. Overall this recipe was very easy, and I would certainly make this again.
It was amazing! I added 1 1/2 cups of strawberries instead of just 1 cup, and it worked out just right! I couldn't find my vanilla extract, so I substituted maple syrup, and in my opinion, it made it taste even better than it would've. I decided not to use almonds because my family isn't big on nuts, but it still tasted fine without them. It's an extremely easy recipe, so I had my younger siblings "help" me out, and they had a lot of fun. Can't wait to try more recipes!
I used sliced almonds (about a handful) and nearly doubled the strawberries. I used all milk instead of part water. Delicious! Defiantly will be making again!
So my daughter and I made this cake. It was awesome, except WAY too sweet. We doubled the amount of strawberries, because we're rebels that way, but next time we plan on cutting the sugar in half. Aside from the overpowering sweetness, it was moist, dense, and oh so good. With a few adjustments it will definitely be a keeper.
I found this recipe delicious as did the guests I had over who tried it. I used a tablespoon instead of a teaspoon of ground almonds just because I love the flavor, but the strawberries made a delightful change to pound cake (which I love anyway!)
Overall, a moist tasty pound cake that always gets positive comments when I make it for a birthday cake. The recipe calls for loaf pans, but I have never made it that way. I have used it twice now for a 4-tiered round cake (I use a pound cake when making a fondant-covered cake as a sturdier cake is required for stability). One batch makes 2 x 6” cakes; bake for 40 min. I haven’t tested it for other pan sizes. For high altitude and personal preference, I make the following adjustments to recipe:
• Omit ground almonds
• Add ½ tsp baking powder
• Sub buttermilk for milk
• Chop strawberries rather than quarter
• Add 4 drops red food coloring
