Love this recipe. I love you Paula. I don't even watch Food Network any more since they took my favorite show off. Paula your recipes are the one that I can eat. Some of the stuff they make on the Food Network people down south have never heard of. Beans, taters and cornbread is my idea of a feast.

Hi, can anyone offer advice? I made this cake a few times and each time it rises and then sink in the middle...I did sift my flour, would this cause it to fall?

Dear Paula, I have made the Georgia pound cake in Maryland also the cream cheese pound cake, always beautiful and tasty. I we moved to Navarre Florida, every time I bake either cake, for 1 hour looking through the glass window of my oven it looks great, but after that they fall, What could be the problem????? Thank you, Mary Lawrence

A friend brought me some pound cake from a party the other day and after eating it I decided I wanted to make my own ...so I turned to Paula! Good thing I did ...the cake turned out great! This is my first time ever making pound cake. If you like your pound cake to have a hint of sweetness to it I suggest you use a glaze as well. I made a glaze out of butter, powdered sugar and vanilla extract to go on top of the cake. Thanks Paula!
