"Not sure where this cake recipe came from, my mom passed it to me many years ago. We use it as a great holiday favorite but I usually sneak it in a couple times a year. It's a great treat to bring to a party or work. The brown sugar and almond extract give it a distinctive taste."

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a fluted tube pan.
  2. Combine brown sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time until well blended.
  3. Whisk flour, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl. Stir vanilla extract and almond extract into buttermilk. Add flour and buttermilk mixtures alternately to the creamed butter mixture, beating well between additions.
  4. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute margarine for the butter if desired.
