Welcome to DC, Nursebrown! This is a friendly and welcoming place where you can learn alot. I have a pound cake recipe that is my very very favorite, but I would be reluctant to bake it in a pan that large - I bake it in a tube pan, so that it cooks evenly throughout. With a pan that big, I would worry that the center would never get done - or when it did, the edges would be very dry. I could be wrong - I hope others who are more expert at baking than I will weigh in on this. If you go ahead and try it, be sure to let us know how it turns out.
