Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
Add 1 pound salted butter to a bowl and beat it with an electric mixer on medium speed until it is light and fluffy, for about 3-5 minutes.
Gradually add in the sugar with the mixer running.
Mix in the eggs one at a time until incorporated into the butter/sugar mixture.
Turn the mixer speed to low.
Add the flour and the milk to the butter mixture, adding about 1/3 of each at a time and alternating between the two as you add, mixing until it is all just combined.
Fold in the vanilla and almond extracts.
Grease and flour a bundt pan.
Pour the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan and smooth it out evenly.
Bake until a cake tester comes out clean, about 1 hour 30 minutes-1 hour 40 minutes.
Transfer the cake from the oven and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
Run a knife along the edges of the bundt pan to loosen the cake.
Transfer the cake from the pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
Slice and serve plain or with whipped cream and fresh berries.
