Pink Stripes chose last week's Rum Drenched Vanilla Cakes. I meant to make this cake all week long. I finally got around to it on Saturday, almost a week late. Now I will be a week late on this week's pick because we have been out of town for the 4th of July and just returned today, with more housework than one woman can possibly handle in a day. Anyway, my apologies to Wendy for being late with this post. The cake tasted a bit Sara Lee to me. I opted not to put rum in it and instead used a bit of almond flavoring. While it was good, it was a tiny bit dry - wonder if I overcooked it. If I had cooked as long as Dorie said, it definitely would have been overdone. Maybe my oven cooks faster than hers. I love pound cake of any kind, so thanks Wendy for a great pick!! As you can see, I wrapped that baby in foil and took to the lake with us. We had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
