Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 25cm tube cake tin. Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in the soured cream, vanilla, orange and almond extracts. Add eggs one at a time, alternating with flour mixture, beating well after each addition. Pour cake mixture into prepared tin.
Bake in the preheated oven for 70 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
You can use two 23x13cm loaf tins instead of the tube cake tin; simply adjust baking time as needed.
