I used chai tea instead of water and added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Holy Smokes this is the best pound cake I ever made and I usually make from scratch.

for a different version of this recipe, i use lemon pudding mix instead of the vanilla. and when the cake is still hot out of the oven, pour a mixture of lemon juice and sugar on the top. VERY YUMMY!!!
