Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  2. Combine the sour cream, rum flavoring, orange extract, almond extract, lemon extract, vanilla extract and apricot brandy. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the sour cream and flavorings mixture, stirring just until incorporated.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

I have the same recipe and this is delicious! Full of flavor. The only difference(which is optional) all 1/2 C. chopped apricots that are lightly floured.

This is one of the best pound cakes I have ever had, very moist and flavourful. Next time will add chopped dried apricots, we love apricots! I used apricot nectar instead of brandy because they were gifts for families with young children. I made 5 mini loaves, baked at 325 for 55 minutes. 4 for my sons teachers, 1 for us! Yummy!

WOW, great flavor and texture. This was luscious, Melissa.We loved the combination of flavors provided by the various extracts. Your grandpa sure knew his way around the kitchen to come up with this great cake! I served it with apricot sauce and a dollop of whipped cream at our dinner party. Everyone loved it.
