When I think of pound cake, I think of a cake generally made with butter, with a compact, moist and tender crumb, a great choice for sculpted(carved) cakes because its sturdy, dense structure lends itself so well to that. This cake is good - but in my frame of reference is NOT a pound cake. It is heavy with oil, fruit and nuts and even becomes more moist (think "wet") because it is saturated with the Apple Cider Glaze. It might just be subjective taste preferences at work here, because there's nothing "wrong" with the recipe, but it's a little too heavy and wet for me, and misleading since it's not the pound cake one would expect from its name.
