Penny I have made the cake and will say it is very rich and moist. I give it 5 stars and tried & true family tested. With the fresh strawberries on top it will be gone. I did not glaze with the orange because I new I was serving fresh strawberries to go with the pound cake. Also Penny I was afraid to make it without adding salt and baking powder. Do you make it without? Well I added it to be on the safe side alot of money to have it not bake up. Thanks
