This was really yummy, although not quite as I expected judging from the other reviews. I used coconut, almond, rum, lemon and vanilla flavouring, and although it turned out really yummy, I couldn't really taste the added flavours. It just tasted like a really good, plain pound cake. Although... that may be because I used "essences" not "extracts".. just realised that extracts are probably stronger. Will add more essence in then next time!
I poured the glaze on top, though I didn't used all of it, and I added milk to it to soften the sweetness. I also reduced the sugar to 2 1/2 cups, and it was still nice and sweet.
Also, next time I think I will add some sliced apples coated in lemon and cinnamon at the top before baking, I think it will go perfect with my cake's flavours!
