  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven; preheat oven to 325°; grease the inside of a 10-inch bundt pan.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl; whisk to combine; set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, using the paddle attachment, beat the butter at medium speed, for about 5 minutes, until very creamy.
  4. Add the sugar in 4 additions, beating for 1 minute after each one, or until light.
  5. Beat in the eggs one at a time, beating for 30 seconds after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.
  6. Beat in the vanilla and almond extract.
  7. At low speed, beat in the flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating it with the cream in two additions; scrape down the sides of the bowl thoroughly after each addition.
  8. Beat for 30-45 seconds longer; scrape the batter evenly into prepared pan.
  9. Bake for 65-75 minutes, or until it is golden on top and a pick comes out clean.
  10. The cake should pull away slightly from the sides of the pan.
  11. Cool the cake in the pan on a rack for 10-12 minutes.
  12. Carefully invert cake onto another rack; let cool completely.
  13. Sift powdered sugar over the top just before serving.
