Butternut Pound Cake


I love this cake. Makes your whole house smell wonderful. If you can't find butternut flavoring, you can also use vanilla-butternut or a combination of vanilla, butter and any nut flavoring of your choice. It is important that you bake this cake in a cold oven - do not preheat!
