    does anyone know if you have to adjust this for altitude???? I live at 7000' and it didn't rise fully, though was still tasty. I did not have a tube pan so used to loaf pans, which usually works out. Thanks all

    Hi Rose,

    I was wondering if regular milk can be used for this recipe? I've never made a pound cake and wanted to try it out today, but I only have regular milk. If not, I guess I'll be making a trip to the grocery store! :)
    Thanks!

    Yes, I love pound cakes, and this one sounds wonderful. I am interested in the crust part.
    Everyone in my family, loves crusts on their
    pound cakes.
    Using buttermilk is a little different as well.

    I made this cake last night for Thanksgiving and it was delicious. It makes a nice crust and cooks up beautifully. The flavors blend well together and I love it just by itself.

    This is our favorite pound cake. It is also wonderful to use in a trifle. I've made lemon sauce for it, caramel sauce, toasted pecans, fresh strawberries and whipped cream.... I have even added fresh blueberries to the batter. I think you will love it.
