Baking is my "Passion", I have literally baked thousands of cakes and I must say that this is one of my absolute favorites. My cake fans simply LOVE it!!! For those of you using a bundt pan, a 10" would be better; this cake pushes a 9" pan to the limit and almost over the top. One member mentioned that she thought the "flavors were fighting too much". Everyone's palate is a little different and with this being said, you can tweak the flavors to satisfy your palate. Personally, I have made several versions of this cake and I prefer to use Brandy flavoring instead of Rum flavoring, simply because Rum can be a bit overpowering to me. Almond and orange flavorings are also FANTASTIC in this cake. You can also increase the butter and/or the vanilla if you feel the other flavors are overpowering. Or simply decrease the flavors that you like the least. Have fun with baking this cake and experiment with flavor variations (but stick with "5" flavors). This is an AWESOME, AWESOME Pound Cake Recipe..ENJOY!!!
