   after each.  Add flour and milk alternately beginning and ending with
   flour. Fold in flavoring by hand. Bake in greased tube pan. Put cake in
   COLD oven then turn oven on to 325 degrees. Bake 1 hour 45 minutes. Do not

   The best thing about this cake is that the outside is crunchy, and the
   inside is wonderfully moist!
