"This is technically considered half pound cake because it calls for half the amount of sugar, flour and butter. But amazing still."

I had a bunch of strawberries to use up and this recipe was the perfect way to use them. I managed to fit it all into one big loaf pan and cooked it ten minutes longer. Came out perfect! Super yummy!
All batter could be placed into one loaf pan. Too sweet and not very flavorful.
It was amazing! I added 1 1/2 cups of strawberries instead of just 1 cup, and it worked out just right! I couldn't find my vanilla extract, so I substituted maple syrup, and in my opinion, it made it taste even better than it would've. I decided not to use almonds because my family isn't big on nuts, but it still tasted fine without them. It's an extremely easy recipe, so I had my younger siblings "help" me out, and they had a lot of fun. Can't wait to try more recipes!
I made this pound cake last night and thought it was excellent. I'm not sure why some reviewers thought it was too sweet - I thought it was just the right amount of sweetness. I forgot to buy the almonds so I left that ingredient out and jut put in a little more strawberry, but I didn't feel like it was missing anything. Like the other reviewers said, there is no reason why you can't fit all this in one loaf pan. It took about 10 extra minutes for it to cook that way. Overall this recipe was very easy, and I would certainly make this again.
We added extra strawberries, which was good, but this was WAY too sweet! Like holy cow I could barely eat it sweet. Next time, we are going to cut the sugar and possibly throw in some cinnamon and yogurt. It's a pretty heavy cake. Would like it lighter.
This recipe is delicious!!! I didn't have two eggs, so I just added a bit more milk, soooooo good. I also added a touch more strawberries. I love that it is super sweet and has a shortbread taste to it. Would definately make this one again!!!
I found this recipe delicious as did the guests I had over who tried it. I used a tablespoon instead of a teaspoon of ground almonds just because I love the flavor, but the strawberries made a delightful change to pound cake (which I love anyway!)
