for a while and tried it today. Will report on flavor when it is cool enough to eat.

Norwegian Gold Cake

"Don't disguise the flavor of this unusual cake with a frosting. It's wonderful plain, with a scoop of ice cream or fresh fruit; but a whipped cream icing is fine for birthday celebrations. You will note a method so different: creaming butter with the flour!

1 cup butter or margarine (I used butter)
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
5 eggs
1-1/3 cups sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon almond extract

In large mixing bowl combine butter or margarine and flour. Cream on low speed of mixer for 5 minutes.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often.

Add sugar, baking powder, salt and almond extract. Beat for 2 minutes at low speed of mixer. Pour batter into ungreased 10-inch tube pan. Bake in a 325 Degree oven for 1 hour or until the cake springs back and leaves no imprint when lightly touched on top. Invert pan; cool for 20 minutes. Remove from pan and finish cooling cake on wire rack. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired.

Makes 12 to 15 servings.
