The Only Great Pound Cake

The Only Great Pound Cake


½ cup shortening
1 cup butter (the real thing)
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
3½ cups flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon rum flavouring
1 teaspoon coconut flavouring


1 cup sugar
⅓ cup water
½ teaspoon almond extract


1.                  Cream together shortening, butter and sugar.
2.                  Add eggs, beating well.
3.                  Sift flour and baking powder and add dry ingredients and milk alternately to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour.
4.                  Add rum and coconut flavorings.
5.                  Pour into a large greased and floured tube pan.
6.                  Bake at 300 degrees for 1½ to 1¾ hours.  Test with toothpick for doneness. (Do not open door during baking.)
7.                  Right before cake should be done, bring water and sugar to a rolling boil.  Remove from heat and add almond extract.  While cake is still in pan, pour the glaze over cake and let stand about 30 minutes before removing from pan.

The Only Great Pound Cake was made and prepared by Shirley-Ann Pearman

In this particular cake, icing sugar was used instead of granulated sugar.  (3 cups of icing sugar)  The reason being, that I didn’t have enough sugar in to cover 3 cups of sugar, so instead I used the icing sugar.
