This was very good. The glaze was terrific! I used strawberries for the garnish, didn't have any blueberries. Served with vanilla ice cream. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
Quite a different flavour from the usual pound cake! It was not as sweet as I expected with two cups of sugar, the glaze is delicious! We enjoyed it plain, with ice cream and with fruit, very nice. I did not have any bourbon so used Canadian whiskey, tasted great! I used a bundt pan and it was baked in an hour.
