I don't really know where to start with this recipe. First, I used a lemon pudding mix and the dried blueberries as some people suggested but I followed the recipe exactly otherwise. The cake came out different from what I expected. It isn't a pound cake in the traditional sense.
It is very oily and doesn't seem as sturdy as a pound cake. There is so much oil that quite a bit remains on the plate. It also caused the cake to stick to the plate in a gooey, unappetizing way. It was definitely finished baking, just far too oily.
I plan on putting some frosting on this cake and keeping it in the refrigerator. Perhaps chilling it will help it firm up a bit. It isn't an inedible cake especially if you don't bake from scratch very often but it does retain that weird "manufactured" quality that cake mixes often have.
I'm giving it 4 stars because I should have known what to expect from a cake mix. Minus 1 star for being overly oily and another for calling itself a pound cake when it is not.
