This is a recipe from my mom's family's personal cookbook. I have no idea where the recipe came from, but it is INSANELY good! My favorite of all time, by far. It is a simple pound cake with no frosting... doesn't sound very good, does it? Trust me... you have to taste it to understand! Enjoy... and try not to eat the whole thing yourself!
Apricot Brandy Pound Cake
3 cups white sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ cup + 1 tablespoon apricot brandy
1 cup sour cream
1 cup butter or margarine
6 eggs
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon orange extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and lightly flour a 12-cup bundt pan. In mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour, baking soda, salt, brandy, butter, sour cream, eggs, and extracts. Mix all ingredients with electric mixer, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 80 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes, and remove cake from pan. Cool completely.
