JIFFY BLACK WALNUT CAKE

This is a very old recipe from a little town in Missouri. My uncle married a gal from Missouri when he was stationed at Ft. Leonard Wood during the Korean War. She brought a lot of her family's recipes to our family.

2 cups sugar
2 sticks butter, softened
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
5 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup black walnut halves
1 tsp lemon extract
1 tsp vanilla extract

Combine all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and beat at high speed of an electric mixer for 5 minutes. Pour the batter into a well-greased tube pan (10-inch size) and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
