    The comments saying this recipe is not good are without merit; it is a perfectly acceptable pound cake. Although not a traditional recipe for eating by itself, it makes wonderful base for petit fours.

    The taste was good, but the temperature and time were off. After about 40 minutes it began to smell like it was more than done.

    Martha's "Team".Would this Cake Be Advantagous to "Turn" half way through Baking? Or,would Cake "fall"? May explain why Other Reviews are stating,'not good".

    I have had success with this recipe, but it did take some tweaking -- the biggest issue for me was the temperatrue and length of time. I'm sure it has everything to do with my terrible oven - and I know everyone's oven is different. I have found that it does better to cook it at a lower temperature, and start doing the toothpick test around 45 minutes. I haven't found the "perfect time" or temperature, but I've lowered it to between 300 and 325 degrees.
