Old fashioned buttery thin crust on the outside of this tube pan cake.There is no salt or milk. Powdered sugar is the key to this cakeand you can use butter, margarine or butter flavored Crisco. I use a combination of butter and butter flavored Crisco. No icing necessary. Serve with fruit, whipped cream or whipped jello or any combination. Recipe found in the walls of our homestead built in 1907 tacked along side of Lithuanian newspapers which were used for insulation. I have updated recipe ie. butter flavored Crisco and Pam. They pounded the sugar to become powder with mortar and pestle.
