I admit my general bias against yellow boxed cake mixes, however, every now and then I come across a recipe that really can fool even me. Not so here. No matter that this recipe doctors up a cake mix nearly to the point of its being a scratch cake; it tasted like, well, a yellow cake mix - a dry, yellow cake mix. Better to have skipped the cake mix altogether, since all the rest of the ingredients for a pound cake were there. In addition, the baking instructions state 60-80 minutes - mine was a tad over baked at 55 minutes. As previous reviewers remarked, this has a coarse crumb, and is not nearly as moist as it should have been. My suggestion, if you are a fan of yellow cake mixes to begin with, is to simply bake a yellow cake mix according to package directions, or look for a doctored cake mix recipe that includes sour cream and pudding. Otherwise, skip the cake mix and make a scratch pound cake.
