Five flavor pound cake is so good! Especially when it's made from scratch, fresh out of the oven! This classic recipe is so easy to make and the crumb texture is AMAZING! It just melts in your mouth! Feel fret swap out for different extract flavors, but you just can go wrong with the flavors of coconut, rum, lemon, vanilla and butter!! You can even get all fancy and throw in some real rum, lemon zest, shredded coconut and vanilla bean if you want, but bring down the extract amount a bit so that's it's not over powering.
