1/2   cup   peach nectar
1/2   cup   rum
3/4   cup   unsalted butter, softened
1 1/4   cups   granulated sugar
2      eggs
1/2   teaspoon   almond extract
1/2   teaspoon   vanilla
1 1/2   cups   unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2   teaspoons   baking powder
1    teaspoon   kosher salt
1/2   teaspoon   baking soda
1/2   cup   boiling water
2    cups   powdered sugar
1/4   cup   unsalted butter, melted
Butter and flour six 1-cup fluted individual tube pans or eight 3 1/4-inch muffin cups. Set aside. In a 1-cup glass measuring cup combine peach nectar and rum; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl beat 1/2 cup of the softened butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add 1 cup of the granulated sugar; beat 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in the almond extract and the vanilla. Sift the flour, baking powder, kosher salt and baking soda into the batter. Beat just until combined. Add 1/2 cup of the rum mixture and the boiling water. Stir by hand until the liquids are incorporated. Divide batter evenly among the prepared pans.
Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes for the fluted individual tube pans or 18 to 20 minutes for the 3 1/4-inch muffin cups or until a toothpick inserted near centers comes out clean.
Meanwhile, for syrup, in a small saucepan combine 1/4 cup of the remaining rum mixture with the remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar and the remaining 1/4 cup softened butter. Cook and stir until sugar dissolves and mixture just come to a simmer. Remove from heat.
Place cakes in pans on a wire rack. Using a toothpick, poke about a dozen holes in each cake. Slowly and evenly spoon syrup over cakes. Cool in pans about 1 hour or until cakes absorb syrup. Unmold cakes.
For glaze, in a medium mixing bowl combine the remaining 1/4 cup peach mixture, the powdered sugar, and 1/4 cup melted butter. Stir briskly to combine. Drizzle over cakes.
