I created this cake with my husband in mind. As he does not care for pound cakes. I added all of his favorite ingredients to this one, and then topped it off with Cream Cheese, added instant coffee, and Coffee flavoring, hopeing to win him over. It worked, after taking my pictures, I came in to add the recipe to JAP, and while here he ate the whole piece, then came in trying to guess all of the added ingredients, he guessed most of them. Then when asked if he wanted me to give some away, he said not right now. That means he LOVES IT, and wants to keep it here for awhile. LOL I have his number
