Made it twice, the first time as written. Yuck-- why tolerate the health hazards of hydrogenated fats? Second time, made it with butter (as pound cakes were originally made) and of course skipped the butter flavoring. Ahhh... much better! So one star as written, but 4 stars with my alteration.

This was yummy! Very quick and was it moist! Tastes best when warm. It has become one of the desserts of choice at our weekly barbecues.

I cut this recipe in half to try it out. The cake fell after I removed it from the oven, but was still very tasty. I used butter-flavored shortening since I didn't have the butter flavoring. It was very moist and tasty. My husband gave this two thumbs up.
