How to make Famous Pound Cake
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.
Step 2: With Baker’s Joy, generously grease a tube bundt pan.
Step 3: Combine the cake ingredients (cake mix, cake flour, sugar, sour cream, butter, eggs, oil, water, vanilla extract, butter flavouring, and almond extract) until smooth, making sure not to overmix.
Step 4: Into the prepared pan, pour the batter and place in the preheated oven. Bake for about 55 to 65 minutes until a fork or toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let the cake cool for at least 10 to 15 minutes before inverting to a serving dish.
Step 5: In the meantime, whisk the powdered sugar and lemon juice to your desired texture. Since it is only a glaze, the consistency should be like thick nectar.
Step 6: A little at a time, pour the glaze over the cake and spread using the back of a spoon. This way the glaze will soak into the still-warm cake.
Step 7: Slice and serve warm or room temperature. Enjoy!
