This is a scrumptious flavored old fashioned style pound cake! The texture reminded me of Grandmas! I didn't have any Apricot Brandy, so I subbed some German Bailoni liquor which tastes almost apricot like to me. This was a special treat Nurse Di, thanks for sharing your family tradition with my family!

Now this is the way pound cake should taste. The flavor of the apricot brandy is mouth-watering. The texture of this cake is moist and slightly dense. The flavor was even stronger the next day. Reminds me of the old-fashioned pound cake my grandmother used to make. Thanks Nurse Di.
