imitation vanilla butter & nut flavor
2 2/3 cups
1 (4 ounce) jar
maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
Excellent! I made this for a Polish dinner festival and it everyone loved it...had many requests for the recipe. I added some rum-soaked raisins, and used diced candied cherries as I couldn't get maraschino cherries when I needed them. I also couldn't find the flavoring, so I used a mix of vanilla, almond and a bit of maple flavoring. Wonderful blend if you have the same problem. My family is Polish and we will definitely be adding this to the dessert list...awsome!
I'm rating this low due to the butter and shortening, plus the 5 eggs. It really is good, though, and if you don't have a health problem it's also lovely to look at. My husband really does like it, so it rates a 5 star in looks & taste.
I started checking the cake after 1 1/2 hours. It was done in about 1 hour 50 minutes, not 2 1/2 hours! I did get rave reviews from my family. I would make it again.
This is a spectacular and great tasting cake - needs no frosting as outside forms a slightly crunchy sweet layer! Would be a colorful, great holiday cake!
This take is soooo good! I made it already about 4 times in one month. For a few friends birthdays, I put it in a basket with Mugs, tea bags,an a nice card! Took the cake to work,also a family get together! Everyone loved it I will try to made little pound cakes for Christmas gifts for my neighbors,and co- workers this year! I baked it 1hr.and about 40 minutes Not 2 1/2hrs YOU WILL LOVE THIS CAKE my friends can't get enough or myself!!
This cake is fabulous. Dense and moist. Baked at 300 in my oven it was done in 1 1/2 hours. The only issue I had with this cake was getting it out of the bundt pan. Make sure to grease & flour this REALLY GOOD! Definitely a "keeper" recipe. Highly recommend! YUM!
I loved this recipe. I substituted buttermilk for the condensed milk and used pecans instead of walnuts. It was delicious. I frosted with Satiny Chocolate Glaze.
very good. brought to madonnas for easter 2011
