Butterbeer Pound Cake
- 3 cups all-purpose flour*
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 2 3/4 cup Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 4 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons dark rum, optional
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon butter extract, optional
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup cream soda
- Butterscotch Sauce, optional for topping
*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a 10-inch bundt pan with baking spray or butter and flour it. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
- In large bowl of stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in rum, vanilla, and butter extract until well combined.
- Beat in flour mixture alternating with milk and cream soda, until smooth,
- Pour batter into prepared bundt pan. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes, until center is set and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Allow cake to cool completely (in bundt pan) before inverting onto cake plate. Serve warm with butterscotch sauce.
