    Wondered what I'd do with that butternut-flavoring in the cabinet. This sounds like it would do nicely. Thanks

    Nelda, what an interesting cake this is. All purpose and self rising flour combination certainly sparks my interest. I'll surely try this at some point b/c I love baking cakes. This is such an excellent idea I'll just have to give it a try and hopefully soon. Thanks!

    Yes, this cake recipe was on the lable of the butternut flavor. Speaking of that has anyone tried the new french vanilla flavor?
