Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 10 inch tube pan and line with parchment paper. Grease the parchment paper. Sift flour, salt and baking powder together and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter, shortening and 3 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add 1 teaspoon rum extract and 1 teaspoon coconut extract. Add flour mixture alternately with milk and evaporated milk. Mix until smooth.
  3. Pour batter into 10 inch tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean. Cool.
  4. Make the glaze: in a saucepan, combine 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, 1 teaspoon rum extract, 1 teaspoon coconut extract and 1 teaspoon almond extract. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Use a toothpick to pierce all over the top of the cake. Pour the glaze over the cooled cake and allow it to soak in.

At first I wasn't sure if maybe I would ruin the cake by adding the sugar/water solution. Fearful that my dessert would become "soggy cake," I only added half of the mix. Next time, I'll know better--add it all! It truly makes it a wonderful, unique dessert!

This cake was pretty good, but I decided not to use the sugar glaze. I thought the cake was already sweet and didn't really need it. I also added a bit of vanilla

This was an excellent pound cake - very rich and addictive :-) Plan to give some pieces to neigbors and friends.
