I finally made this cake, and it was very good. I did do something different, though. I did not have almost extract so I used an almond liqueur. Also, instead of making one big cake, I made 5 mini loaves so that I could give some away. I think it would have fit better in 6, however. I would make this pound cake again.

I have read every single review and have to say that I can't wait to try this recipe. It sounds so delicious. And I love the idea of possibly using lemon extract for a lemon pound cake. Will make the original recipe first, then maybe try to use lemon extract. I'll make some very happy family members! ! Thank you for your recipe and for everyone else who commented with useful help.
