This recipe was given to me many many years ago. It truly is a tried and well enjoyed cake by all who try it. I am always reminded when I bake this of the many times I sat around my grandmother's kitchen cracking walnuts! Note that you begin baking this in a COLD oven!

In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, Crisco and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add salt, baking powder, and flour which you have whisked together in another bowl. Beat with mixer until blended well.
Add water, cream, and vanilla. Mix well to blend together.
