Yuletide Pound Cake Recipe

Yuletide Pound Cake Recipe

I always serve this beautiful bundt cake when we decorate our Christmas tree. It's not too sweet for the little ones, who can snack on it without getting too full for the "munchie" part of the evening.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling YIELD:12-16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • GLAZE:
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons milk

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extracts. Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream just until combined.
  • 2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • 3. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over cake. Yield: 12-16 servings.
