Vanilla beans and their tiny seeds lend an especially intense flavor and heavenly aroma to any dessert. Here, we’ve got double the vanilla; the seeds are incorporated in both the cake and the glaze, creating not only delicious flavor, but also a beautifully speckled thick glaze.
It’s important not to forget the salt in vanilla recipes. Without it, the vanilla flavor will be flat and boring.

The cake looked beautiful, but I have to say that I found it a little dry. It definitely needed the glaze, which was delicious, because the flavor of the cake was a little bland.
This is a wonderful pound cake.Have made it many times and it's always a big hit.The glaze is fabulous!
