This is another one of those recipes that I have been using for years. All of the different extracts really make it taste wonderful. Then it is infused with the 6 flavor glaze to add even more depth in flavor.Adding the glaze to the top creates extra moisture, so the cake is very moist. My neighbors really love this cake with natural Vanilla Bean ice cream. I do add the addition of nuts to this cake most of the time, but that is optional if you do not care for nuts leave them out, it will not alter the outcome of the cake. This family favorite recipe is also in my cookbook.


2 stick
butter, softened
1/2 c
shortening, (i use butter flavored crisco)
2 3/4 c
granulated sugar
3 c
all purpose flour
1 c
5 large
eggs, room temperature well beaten
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1 tsp
each almond, coconut, butter, rum, vanilla & lemon extracts
1 c
1/2 c
1 tsp
each almond, butter, coconut, rum, vanilla & lemon extracts
1 c
chopped nuts, (if using for the cake) optional

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease & flour a 12 cup tube or bundt pan, or use cooking spray. Set aside till needed.
Combine flour with baking powder & set aside till needed.Cream butter, shortening, & sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat till mixed. Gradually add the flour to the creamed mixture, alternately with the milk. Stir in extracts, & mix well. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan & bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 90 minutes.
While cake is baking, prepare glaze by combining all of the glaze ingredients in a heavy sauce pan & stir over low heat, until the sugar has dissolved. Poke holes in the cake with a large tined fork or wooden skewer and slowly drizzle the glaze over the top of cake and allow it to soak in, while cake is still in pan. Let cake cool completely before removing from pan.
NOTE; When I add nuts to the cake, I pour half of the batter into the cake pan, then sprinkle all the nuts on top of batter, & then add the remaining batter, and bake as directed. This just adds another level of texture to the cake with the crunch from the nuts. You can also dust the nuts with one tablespoon of flour and then add them directly to your batter. Stirring to mix in.
Dusting the nuts first, prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the cake, and are more evenly distributed throughout batter.

Thank you so much Missy, so glad you liked it, I made it one year at one of our Reunion Dinners and one family friend that was there loved it so much that she bought one of my cookbooks, just because of that one recipe. She said it was one of the best pound Cakes she had ever eaten.

We love it too, especially with all of the blended flavors. So glad to hear that you liked it. Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks so much Billie, but yes he offered for us to go out, but I know he prefers a nice home cooked meal, and that is what I will do, that way we avoid the crowds, and have lots of left overs for the next day or so.

So I am getting some of my prep work done early today, and hopefully it will all come together. Smile. I wish I knew where the enthusiasm went,Smile, but Hopefully I will get it all done, and we will have a nice dinner. It just may be that I am not with any family, and I really miss their presence,my daughter can't come home, and all of my siblings are all over the place. Two of my brothers are going to Hawaii to celebrate the others 20th Wedding Anniversary. We all have those kind of days, but then life goes on, and we make the most of our situation. Have a wonderful Easter Billie. God Bless. Thanks for the comments.
