I made this cake for a church function. It was a big hit. It was very moist, and the addition of almond, vanilla & butter extract gave it the little push I felt it needed in the flavor department. I got several requests for the recipe. I found the recipe in a splenda cookbook, and it has been a favorite ever since. I have even added 2 cups of frozen blu4eberries, and it was so full of blueberry flavor, they just exploded through out the cake.dusted top with powdered sugar.
sifted cake flour
1 1/2 c
splenda sugar blend for baking
butter, softened (2 sticks)
eggs, room temperaure
pure vanilla exract
each almond & butter extracts
1Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan or a 12 cup Bundt pan. Set aside.
2Combine flour, Splenda sugar blend for baking and baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with a fork or pastry blender until crumbly.This step may be done with a blender using the lowest speed. cover with a clean tea towel to prevent splatters.
3Combine eggs, sour cream and all extracts in a small mixing bowl; add 1/4 of the egg mixture to flour mixture. Beat at low speed with an electric mixer until blended. Beat at medium speed for 30 seconds, or until batter is smooth, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl. Repeat procedure 3 times.
4Spoon batter into prepared pan.
5Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan, cool completely on wire rack
6NOTE: The original recipe does not call for the addition of almond and butter extract. So you may omit if you like. I just love the two flavors blended together.
Also I have made this recipe with the addition of 2 cups of frozen blueberries. It was really moist and good.
