Cake Help!

danagrace | Dec 6, 201008:35 AM

I have not had much luck finding a scratch rum cake that I like. So, I was wondering if I could make my own rum cake using a pound cake recipe that I have?

How much rum can I add without altering/messing up the cake? The details of the cake are below. It cooks at 325 and is made in a tube pan. Would it be best to leave rum out of the cake and make a rum syrup/glaze to pour over after it comes out of the oven? I would like it to be boozy!

3 sticks of butter
3 cups of sugar
5 eggs
3 ¼ c sifted cake flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 c milk (I use buttermilk)
1 tsp each: vanilla, lemon, rum, coconut, almond extract/flavor

½ c sugar
1/3 c water
½ tsp Almond extract
