1/2 pound butter
1-2/3 cup sugar
5 eggs, beaten until lemon-colored
2 cups cake flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract


Cream butter and sugar well. Add eggs. Add flour with baking powder and salt, beat all together and add flavorings while beating. Pour in well-greased tube pan and bake in a 325 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

This recipe makes a medium-sized, rather than a large cake.
