DIRECTIONS

  • Spray heavy-duty bundt or tube pan with Baker's Secret or grease and flour it.
  • In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, mace, and salt, and set aside.
  • Add vanilla to milk, and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • To shortening/butter mixture, alternately add 1/3 flour mixture and 1/3 milk mixture, mixing between additions.
  • Repeat until all flour and milk are incorporated into batter.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
  • Place cake in COLD oven.
  • Turn oven to 350 degrees and bake for 1 hour 10 minutes.
  • Do NOT open oven door while cake is baking.
  • After the 70 minutes cooking time, test cake for doneness, as oven temperatures vary.
  • Cake should be golden brown on top, and a toothpick inserted in center of cake should come out clean.
  • After cake is partially cooled, remove from pan.
  • VARIATION: Substitute rum or brandy flavoring for the vanilla.
  • If desired, make a glaze of powdered sugar and water or lemon juice and pour over cooled cake.
