    I questioned the addition of a tablespoon of coarse salt...but I added it to this recipe. Yikes, way too salty. The texture of this pound cake is more than dense, almost to a fault. I've been baking for a long time and this recipe didn't turn out correctly. Anyone have any hints as to my failure. I would not make this again unless there was some modification of the recipe. I'd look for another, this one was disappointing.

      Just like someone else on here as I was making it,I'm thinking ...something just doesn't seem right with this recipe,have never used a tablespoon of salt in a cake before,felt for the amount of batter there just wasn't enough berries so I doubled it.The lemon cream seems does not look like there is anything like that in the picture.Well it's in the over now...we shall see what happens...wish me luck....

    This is so delicious and easy to make. Next time I may use a medley of berries. This recipe is true to a Martha Stewart recipe.Need I say more.

    Can you bake it in a large Bundy pan instead of loaf pans?

    I love this pound cake..first time made in large loaf pans, second time I experimented with small/mini loaf pans, so I could give as gifts. These are delicious! I always add additional blueberries..Thanks Martha!

    I made this poundcake last year for a 4th of July picnic and it was so good. I got many compliments on it. I had lost my recipe for it, but fortunately was able to find it on here. I'm not much of a fan of blueberries, but I loved this cake! I am adding it to my favorite recipes.

    This was the favorite of everything that I made last year. I am begged to make it all the time. Its a perfect dessert! I made a bunch of mini loaf pans and filled them with it so it was a nice individual dessert that no one wanted to share!

    I agree with below comment, it was more spongy then expected but still good.

    I wanted a traditional pound cake with blueberries so unfortunately this did not meet my expectations - too much butter (even though not really buttery inside but instead quite buttery on the outside where butter seeped out), too many eggs (texture shows it) and too much salt (can taste the salt).
