This didn't have the texture that pound cakes usually have (in my experience), but it was moist and delicious. I'll be making it again, I'm sure. I combined the
spice suggestions posted in some other reviews and used 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. allspice, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, 3/4 tsp. cloves, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, and 1/8 tsp. cardamom. It only took 35 minutes to be perfectly baked in my 9x13 pan and I had no trouble turning it out onto a baking sheet after letting it cool.
Additionally, I served this dusted with powdered sugar and then I spooned a simple lemon sauce over the top. For the lemon sauce, melt 1/2 c. butter or margarine in the microwave. Whisk in 1 c. granulated sugar, 1 tsp. grated lemon peel, and 1/3 c. fresh lemon juice (for me, the juice of 2 lemons). Add 1 egg and whisk again until blended. Microwave on medium-high (70%) for 4 minutes, stirring at the halfway point. It will thicken up a bit. Serve warm.
I served it to my husband and a friend and they loved it.
