DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the dry ingredients then add remaining ingredients, mixing until smooth.
  • Bake in a greased 9x13 pan at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes, until center is firm.
  • Cool then frost if desired.
  • To make frosting:
  • In a saucepan, mix the flour in a little of the milk till smooth, then add the remaining milk. Cook over a slow fire until thick, 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir briskly-this has a tendency to get lumpy!
  • Remove from heat, stir in the salt and cool thoroughly in the refrigerator. This needs to be very cold.
  • Beat in the butter until well creamed. Add the vanilla and almond extract and the powdered sugar. Beat with electric mixer until thick and creamy.
