DO NOT PREHEAT OVEN.
Cream together butter, sugar and crisco. Add
eggs one at a time. Mix dry ingredients
together in a separate bowl. Alternate adding
dry ingredients and milk to the butter mixture
just until well mixed. Do not over beat. Fold in
vanilla. Pour mixture into a greased and
floured tube pan. Place in a cold oven and set
temperature to 350 degrees. Bake approximately
75-90 minutes. I usually check at an hour to and
then judge from there.
