Top Review by Pat H

This is the exact recipe that I have made for years. I make it for gifts at Christmas and always tell the recipient that it freezes very well. I also make it when one daughter visits three or four times a year, but missed one time, and her husband commented that was his only visit when we had not had an Apricot Brandy Pound Cake. It does take a while to prepare, but is well worth the time. And, when I make one or two on successive days, I leave everything "out" to reduce prep time. I use either butter or margarine. And, as Rose said, I am sure it would be a good cake to ship. Enjoy!
