one 10-inch cake

The name of this cake is derived from the rose geranium leaves {Pelargonium graveolens) that may be used to line the pan before pouring in the batter. The addition of geranium adds a strong "rose geranium" taste to the finished cake.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cream butter; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour and baking powder; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in the vanilla.

Step 2

Line a well-greased 10-inch tube pan with the geranium leaves, if desired; pour batter into pan. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until cake tests done. Cool in pan 15 minutes; remove from pan, and let cool completely. Sift powdered sugar over top of cake, if desired.
