Cake is very good but the frosting is wonderful!!!!! It like candy and my kids love it. I will use it for other cakes also. Thanks.
I was disappointed with this recipe for several reasons. I followed directions exactly, making no changes but it still came out rather dry and tough. The strange thing is, I baked it for exactly 70 minutes, checked it for doneness, and then when I sliced into it, you could see that it was slighty undercooked. Usually, that would make for a moister cake...but not this time. The frosting/glaze was great, though (if you like brown-sugar candy, you'd like this!). It did not have the texture I was looking for either.
While this is a pretty cake, and while the frosting is wonderful, the cake itself is dry, dry, dry. 'Nuff said.
This cake has become a favorite at our house. Easy and proud to say it is a "scratch" cake. My grandchildren love the glaze!
oh...my...goodness...this icing was to die for. I did not make the cake because I had my own recipe, but the icing was so good. I had so many compliments on the icing and how it really complimented the cake. I will always make this icing for my pound cakes now!
Good pound cake recipe. I didn't have maple extract so used vanilla. The cake had a good texture and flavor. The glaze on top was really great. We served with strawberries and whipped cream.
This exact recipe appeared in a magazine I saw last month-I believe it was Southern Cooking or something like it...anyway I wrote it down and made it the same day and it was fabulous. I gave some to all of my "cooking friends" and everyone was VERY pleased. The frosting is great, although I thought the recipe made way too much of it and I covered the cake like 3 times with it! I'd scale the frosting back by 1/3 but otherwise a great addition to my recipe box.
Fantastic recipe! Firm and moist. Everyone loved it. I would definitely make this again.
