In another bowl whisk together the oil, milk, eggs, and vinegar. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; stir to combine (batter may appear curdled). Spoon batter into prepared pan.
- Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on the wire rack. Drizzle with glaze. Sprinkle with fresh thyme leaves.

I just made this cake and found that the cooking time was wrong. I suggest cooking it at 325 like a regular pound cake.
