Followed this recipe exactly and it did not disappoint: not too sweet, rich, buttery, simply...perfect. I was looking for a gluten free pound cake to cube and dip into chocolate fondue. This was easy to make, smelled amazing while baking, and was delicious eaten plain with tea as well as dipped in chocolate!

The only change I made was using our farm fresh duck eggs instead of Land O Lakes eggs.

This cake turned out as promised; a soft moist crumb nicely brown on the outside. In my oven it took 50 minutes. I used a different flour mix than what was suggested and maybe that is the reason for the top falling just a little. Regardless, the cake is delicious and I can recommend it and will make it again
