rum flavored extract
After reading other reviewers' comments, I followed some advice and made the following alterations: I substituted eggnog (and I used 1 cup versus 3/4 cup), and vanilla extract. I added a cup of rum-soaked dried berries (blueberry, cherry, cranberry). I baked in a bundt pan rather than a loaf pan, and watched cooking times very carefully. The results were delicious -- this was a hit at the day-after-christmas-breakfast with my family. Thanks!
3 Stars for potential. I concur with other reviewers who state that this is a DRY cake. If you are expecting a true pound cake this is NOT the recipe for you. Some enhancements I made that you might consider: using all butter instead of part shortening, part butter; using a good commercial egg nog to replace the milk (I used Old New England brand egg nog that has booze added; find at wine shops and liquor stores). Also NOTE--the recipe time is definitely wrong for a loaf pan of this size. At most you're looking at 50 min. baking time. All in all a recipe that could be spectacular with some tinkering........
People that don't like eggnog love this cake. I took it to a cookout last night and it disappeared in minutes!!!
Like other reviewers suggested I used egg nog instead of milk and vanilla extract instead of rum. I also carefully watching the baking time and at around 50 minutes the tooth pick came out clean all over the cake so I took it out of the oven. However after the cake cooled it practically crumbled when I cut it, and yet there were still mini lumps of flour mixture inside the cake despite mixing thoroughly. I also didn't think it tasted much like egg nog even though I used it! Sorry, too bland and time consuming for a not-so-great result.
Just tried this recipe for Thanksgiving and it is super. I made it in mini-loaf pans and baked for 40 minutes to give to neighbors. Fantastic butter-rum flavor.
A new holiday tradition for me! Yummy!
Good cake to go with tea.
Good flavor, but not a true pound cake texture. My family thought it was to dry.
