If you like cake... and fruit... this is the recipe for you! Our Vanilla Pound Cake Mix is packed with an excellent variety of dried fruit. Golden raisins, black currants, dried apricots and tart little dried cranberries all mix together in a brandy marinade to make this recipe incredibly flavorful. Topping this loaf with sliced almonds gives each bite the perfect crunch. I enjoy a slice with orange or apricot preserves for a little extra zip of flavor. This cake recipe is perfect with a cup of coffee for breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack. I hope you enjoy this pound cake recipe as much as I do.
