    I don't have an electric mixer with paddle. Will a hand mixer work?

      Probably. Would just take a little more elbow grease.

    Something is off with this recipe. The batter overflowed the pan and it took waaaay longer to bake. The edges were burning while the middle was still setting up. I wonder if it was meant for two pans? End product was OK, but I'll be searching for different pound cake recipe next time.
