Cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Add eggs, flavorings. Triple sift flour and remeasure 3 cups. Blend into creamed mixture. Bake in a tube pan or angel food pan at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Easy, huh? One more thing, after you have your batter in the pan, take a butter knife and make a circle around the center if you using an angel food pan or a straight line in the center if using a tube pan.
* If Vanilla Butter and Nut Flavoring is not available in your area, use 1 extra teaspoon of Vanilla and 1 extra teaspoon of Butter flavoring instead. Also, for a change, you can substitute the 1 teaspoon Lemon extract with any extract of your choice like rum, brandy, almond, pineapple, coconut or orange.

I am very proud to present My Baking Portfolio which displays some of the tasty treasures that I have made over the past year. Don’t worry, I will continue writing about the music that we have all come to love but I also notice that occassionally people search the site for recipes so I decided to do this feature. I will eventually create a separate blog for baking, maybe. Here are some other holiday favorite for your enjoyment.
