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.

My husband, who is retired, made this cake and everyone who ate some wanted the recipe. The lazy ones wanted to know when he was going to make another one. My husband was a plumber. So, yes it was easy to make.

I made this cake for Thanksgiving & it was a hit! Everyone loved it. I'm not a pound cake eater, but this, I couldn't stay away from.

Light, moist and delicious. Flavoring goes all through the cake. Co-workers really enjoy it when I make one and bring it to work.
