After reading the other reviews, I too decided to change the recipe around. I omitted the mace, lowered the sugar content to 2 1/2 cups, added 1 tsp almond extract, lowered the temp to 325, but still cooked it for 1 hour 20 minutes as suggested. It turned out beautiful! This was the first pound cake I ever made, and I think it is a good one for me to use as a base to experiment with...like adding different flavorings and such. I had a friend eat some of it and she is still putting me in her "good cook" category, so if you are inexperienced at pound cake, this recipe will make it seem as if you were an old pro. And if you are wondering what I thought of the cake, my oinion doesn't count bacause I still have a cold and foods don't taste the same right now...my husband is the one that gave it 4 stars...
