NordicWare Butter Rum Christmas Tree Cake - Instructions
Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease and lightly flour Christmas tree pan; set aside.
In large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add remaining cake
ingredients except fruit and nuts. Blend on low speed one minute, scraping bowl often.
Beat 3 minutes on medium speed. Fold in fruit and nuts.
Divide batter evenly in half and spoon into prepared pan. Using a spatula, spread
batter out to edges of branches and base of tree. (Note: Batter will be lower in the
center of the tree.)
Mound batter slightly in the "star". Place pan on baking sheet and bake at 325 F for
50 to 60 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
