English Pound Cake
I baked this cake on Christmas morning, 2014. It was absolutely fantastic. I used the exact ingredients listed but chose to whip all of the eggs into the wet ingredients before folding in the flour mixture. I think the original method could easily lead to overmixing. The flavour was perfect, the texture nice and the whole house was filled with a wonderful fragrance of cake. I drizzled a thinned confectioners sugar icing over the cake and scattered Christmas candy sprinkles on top. Two days later the small remaining piece that I hid away is still fresh and moist. By the way,I baked it for exactly 70 minutes. That seemed to work perfectly with my oven. This cake would no doubt also be wonderful if prepared with different flavours. I'm thinking lemon extract and grated lemon rind, or even as a Rum Cake with rum syrup poured over it. Thank you Valerie Lynne, for a wonderful recipe.

Samhain Pumpkin Bread
An excellent pumpkin bread, I wouldn't change any of the ingredients. My main concern was the finished size. Using the correct sized loaf pans yielded 2 very shallow loaves. In the future I will make just 1 loaf and bake it somewhat longer. Thank you for a great recipe.
