Verdict of this cake
  • My DH and son like it alot, they had it for supper and breakfast. Each took two slices at ago.
  • Don't be fool by it appearance ( lousy presentation and foto taking), the pound cake itself was very moist and light..... I can't describe the feeling some furry feeling with the strong aroma of dulce de leche lingering in your mouth.
  • Will try to bake it again using the original recipes with condensed milk.
Hope it not too bad for my first attempt!
