what is curd? strawberry curd? cheese curd?

 

i think about the only way to determine if this is a viable recipe or not is to bake it and see unless someone else has made it

AWarning: I haven't made a cake with these proportions before, so my opinion is just from reading!

First, there's no eggs in this pound cake, which is a little odd. I don't see much in terms of ingredients that could then substitute for eggs to give structure to the cake, apart from the curd. I'm guessing this is a soft curd cheese?

It also seems to have A LOT of wet ingredients compared to the dry ones.

But it's just as [@]K8[/@] said, you'll have to suck it and see. (that's have a go in Australian....)

no eggs........it's not a pound cake.  It may make something that is more like a cheesecake in texture. However even cheesecake has eggs for structure.
