Butternut Cake

Katherine Short


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.
