Directions:
Cream butter until light, then cream with sugar.
add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition (2-5 minutes mentioned). Add the flour and baking powder alternately with milk. Some add orange and lemon peel, some add just vanilla, and some add no additional flavoring. One cook suggested chopped nuts.
Grease and flour a tube pan. Turn batter into the pan and bake at 350F. Most said it would be done in 55 - 60 minutes. Some said 75 - 90 minutes. These differences may have been handed down as the result of inaccurate, old ovens. Check the cake at 1 hour. Partially cool the cake in the pan on a rack before removing. No icing is required. A sprinkling of 10X sugar is nice.
