  • Two medium mixing bowls
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Electric mixer
  • Sifter
  • Whisk
  • Wire rack

Step by step instructions

Step one: Prepare a 10-inch tube pan and preheat your oven

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and also spray your 10-inch tube pan with cooking spray.

Step two: Sift your flour

Using your sifter, sift your flour into a mixing bowl. Then add your baking soda and salt to the all-purpose flour that you have sifted.

Step three: Cream your butter and sugar

Using an electric mixer, cream together your butter and sugar in a large bowl. After that, beat the mixture together at medium-high speed for around three minutes. Beat the mixture together until it is smooth, fluffy, and pale, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.

Step four: Add the eggs

With your mixer running at medium speed, add your eggs in one at a time. Let each egg fully incorporate into the mixture after each addition. When needed, be sure to scrape the sides of your mixing bowl.

Step five: Add the flour mixture and sour cream

Next, set your electric mixer to low speed. Add one-third of your flour mixture as well as half of your sour cream. Alternate adding the two until you have added all of your flour mixture and sour cream into your cake batter.

Step six: Add the extracts into the cake batter

Continue to beat your cake batter mixture at low speed for another two minutes. Then, add your vanilla extract, coconut extract, lemon extract, rum extract, and almond extract in one at a time.

Allow each extract to become fully incorporated into your cake batter before adding the next one. After that, continue to beat your cake batter for four more minutes.

Step seven: Bake the cake

Carefully pour your cake batter into your 10-inch greased tube pan. Then, bake your cake for approximately one hour or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Allow your five-flavored cake to cool in its pan for 10 minutes. After that, carefully invert it onto a wire rack to fully cool.

Step eight: Make the glaze (optional)

In a medium bowl, add the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, half and half or milk. Use a whisk to mix all the ingredients together until it reaches a smooth consistency. If it is too thin, add more powdered sugar and if it is too thick, add more milk or half and half.

Once your cake is cool, pour your glaze all over the top of your pound cake. Then, late the glaze set for around five minutes before serving your cake.

Tips And Tricks

Store your cake in an airtight container at room temperature for four to five days. You can also store your pound cake, glaze or no glaze, in the fridge for up to one week in the fridge in an airtight container. Let your cake reach room temperature before serving it to your guests.

You can also freeze your cake as well, whether whole or leftover slices. Simply cover your cake in a layer of plastic wrap and then a layer of aluminum foil. Then, place your cake carefully in the freezer for up to six months to a year.

When you are ready to serve your cake, allow it to thaw at room temperature for up to two hours or in the fridge overnight. Bring to room temperature to serve and after that store any leftovers in the fridge. In addition, also be sure to keep your cake in an airtight container when not serving it.

If you want to make the cake even more unique, you can also add a teaspoon of pineapple as well to the batter. The pineapple will pair well with all the other flavors of the cake. You can also add any or all of the extracts to your glaze as well, adding just 1/2 teaspoon of each.
