Gumdrop Cake



Nothin' says Christmas like gumdrop cake. I don't know why I only make this at Christmas ~ maybe because my mom only makes it at Christmas. So yummy. You'll want this recipe handy when next fall finds you making lists and checking them twice.

1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 c. chopped gumdrops

Cream butter and sugar. Beat eggs and add to butter mixture. In separate bowl stir to combine salt, flour and baking powder. Add to butter mixture alternately with milk. Stir in gumdrops. Scrape into greased tube pan. Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool in pan on rack for about 10 minutes. Slide knife around sides and middle of pan and carefully turn out onto rack to cool completely.

Sounds like a great recipe, especially for kids. I have 2 different sized tube pans. One is 10 x 3 1/4; one is 10 x 4 1/4.
Any recommendation as to which size would be best for this cake?

For some reason I only make this at Christmas too, a little something extra to look forward to during the holidays :)
