directions

  • Cream together sugar, margarine and Crisco.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flours together.
  • Add flours to the cream mixture, alternating with the milk.
  • Add the vanilla.
  • Beat for 10 minutes, scraping down the bowl several times.
  • Pour into greased and floured tube pan.
  • Place in a COLD oven.
  • Bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean. Note: Sometimes this cake has taken up to 2 hours to bake. It all depends on the oven. You don't want to raise the oven temperature because the crust won't form properly.
  • Allow cake to cool in pan for 30 minutes and then run a butter knife around the edges before removing it from the pan.
