***Pound Cake*** 1 cup butter or margarine 1/2 cup shortening 3 cups sugar 6 eggs 3 cups flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon allspice 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 cup apple cider 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ***Caramel Glaze*** 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup buttermilk 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 2 teaspoons corn syrup 1/4 cup margarine 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 10-inch tube pan with nonstick cooking spray.
For pound cake, soften butter and shortening. Gradually add sugar, beating for 1 minute. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating for 1 1/2 minutes after each addition.
Sift together flour, salt, allspice, nutmeg, baking powder, cloves and cinnamon. Blend together cider and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture alternately with cider mixture. Stir until well-blended. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until done.
For glaze, combine sugar, buttermilk, baking soda, corn syrup, margarine, vanilla and cinnamon in medium saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil over low heat. Boil for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Top pound cake with glaze.
Fabulous, absolutely fabulous. The caramel topping instructions are a little vague, so I had to make that twice, but other than that this is a definite winner.
