Katherine's notes for this recipe:
I was given this recipe by my husbands mother. when making this cake do not use any other flavoring that says Butter and nut. Use only the type that is pictured with the cake. It is a flavoring from Superior and believe me I have tried the one by homeland and it does not come close to the taste and it turns the cake pink instead of the beautiful yellow you see. You can order this brand it is called Superior Imitation Vanilla Butter and nut. hope you enjoy the cake.

Can you bake this cake in a tube pan? And how many layers does it make?

to Linda white I hope you will enjoy this recipe but make sure to use the Superior Vanilla butter andnut flavoring. I know you can find the flavoring on line and if there is a Piggly wiggly grocery chain sells the flavoring.

There is a recipe for a tube butter nut cake on the bottle. But if made this way it makes a 2 layer cake. My mother in law had those small cake pans and some times she would make 4 thin layers and it was awesome with all that frosting.

I just got back from church and I took this cake for our Wed. night meal there wasn't one piece of this cake left. I had a man come to me and ask if he could scrape the crumbs and frosting off the cake plate. He said he had never eatin a cake like it before.
