I enjoy trying new and different recipes, often they work out great but not always! I thought 3 cups of sugar was too large an amount for this cake, so I cut it down to 2 1/2 cups. After only 1 hour at 325 F (my bundt pan was the dark non-stick type), I checked it, sure enough it was baked and looked perfect. The problem was it would not come out of the pan even though I had greased it well. I noticed the lovely golden brown top was sort of crunchy as if it had been brushed with caramel, I realized it was probably that way all around and on the base of the cake. As I was taking it to a "cook-out" I decided to leave it in the pan, it was to be served with whole blackberries, a berry puree then topped with whipped cream. Sure enough it was sticky all around the cake so no wonder it wouldn't come out of the pan. I used my plastic cake server to cut and lift out the cake slices and no-one minded it not being on a plate, the cake actually was perfect with the berries and cream, though a little on the dry side to eat just as a "pound cake" rather crumbly too but the flavor was good. I am sure the amount of sugar was the reason I had the sticking problem, I wish I had followed my instincts and cut it down to 1 1/2 cups. Plus, with the ingredients of 1 cup of butter, 3 cups of sugar, 6 eggs, no way is it a "health friendly" cake. I 'll keep using my tried and true Sour Cream(lite) pound cake recipe which is more health friendly.
