Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    I love the flavor of this cake and have made it many times. This time I made 3/4 recipe in an 8.5"x4.5" pan (smallest I currently have); a smaller pan would have been better as the loaf was rather squat. Texture was soft and fine, like classic pound cake.

    8x4 pan will do fine. Spicing is more delicate than I expected; the cocoa is not noticeable.

    Neither my husband or I liked this cake. The flavor was great but the consistency was not what we expect in a pound cake. It was more like a regular mix cake. However, I plan to use the flavorings in another pound cake recipe.
