Can I double a standard (1 loaf) pound cake recipe, assuming I bake in 2 pans?

And if so, is there anything I need to know? Thanks, everyone. ;o)

There should be no problem doubling the recipe as long as you bake them in 2 same size loaf pans as the recipe calls for. In fact, many pound cake recipes are for 2 pans.

I've found pound cakes to be the most forgiving in terms of halving or doubling the recipe. I frequently double my Coconut Pound Cake recipe and both cakes (bundt size) always turn out fine.
