3 Stars for potential. I concur with other reviewers who state that this is a DRY cake. If you are expecting a true pound cake this is NOT the recipe for you. Some enhancements I made that you might consider: using all butter instead of part shortening, part butter; using a good commercial egg nog to replace the milk (I used Old New England brand egg nog that has booze added; find at wine shops and liquor stores). Also NOTE--the recipe time is definitely wrong for a loaf pan of this size. At most you're looking at 50 min. baking time. All in all a recipe that could be spectacular with some tinkering........

After reading other reviewers' comments, I followed some advice and made the following alterations: I substituted eggnog (and I used 1 cup versus 3/4 cup), and vanilla extract. I added a cup of rum-soaked dried berries (blueberry, cherry, cranberry). I baked in a bundt pan rather than a loaf pan, and watched cooking times very carefully. The results were delicious -- this was a hit at the day-after-christmas-breakfast with my family. Thanks!

People that don't like eggnog love this cake. I took it to a cookout last night and it disappeared in minutes!!!
