Fabulous Gum Drop Cake

Just in time for the Holiday Season comes this fabulous recipe which was given to me by my good friend Peggy E.

1 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp. lemon extract
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup warm milk
3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
250 grams baking gums

Using scissors, cut baking gums into small pieces (about the size of a small pea) and drop them into a bowl lightly coating them with flour.

Cream butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add lemon and vanilla and mix well.

In a separate bowl combine flour and baking powder.

Add flour and milk in alternating portions and mix until smooth.

Stir in baking gums.

Pour into a greased bundt pan.

Bake for 2 hours at 275 degrees (or until toothpick comes out clean).

Cool completely.

Slice and serve. (Try not to eat it all in one sitting!)

Portions can be frozen and will keep for several weeks.
