READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by h jones

This is GREAT. I love to take this to any pot luck event and always gets lots of attention. I never bring any home. Should be made early enough so it can sit a day or two. And yes vanilla butter and nut flavoring is one type of flavoring not two separate ones.

Love the combo of flavors in this cake ~ really nice! Was almost tempted to share with a neighbor, but am glad I didn't! Instead sent two small pieces home with my son & kept the rest for myself! Gonna have to start using this vanilla butternut flavoring in other things, 'cause it adds a great flavor of its own! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
