How to Make Aunt Faye’s Pound Cake
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Generously spray a tube bundt pan with Baker’s Joy.
Step 3: Combine the cake mix, flour, sugar, sour cream, butter, eggs, oil, water, vanilla extract, butter flavoring, and almond extract. Mix until smooth but do not overmix.
Step 4: Transfer the batter into the prepared pan. Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 55 to 65 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Step 5: Once done, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool for at least 5 minutes before inverting into a serving plate.
Step 6: Meanwhile, make the frosting by combining the powdered sugar and lemon juice. Mix until you reached your desired consistency. Since it is only a glaze, the texture should be like a thick nectar.
Step 7: Glaze the warm cake a little at a time. Use the back of a spoon to spread the glaze to allow it to soak in the cake.
Step 8: Serve the cake either warm or room temperature. Enjoy!
