1970s Duncan Hines Apple Cinnamon Pound Cake

This is another old recipe from my late mother's large collection of recipe clippings and flyers.  You may notice at the bottom this is dated 6/72.  It did not copy well so I will type it out to make it easier to read.

1 package Duncan Hines Apple Cinnamon Deluxe Cake Mix
1/2 cup Crisco Oil*
4 eggs
1 package vanilla instant pudding mix (4serving size)
1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
blend all ingredients in a large bowl; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.  bake in a greased and floured 10-inch ube pan at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes, until center springs back when touched lightly.  Cool right side up for about 25 minutes, then remove from pan.
Glaze:  Blend 1 cup confectioners sugar with either 2 tablespoons milk or 2 tablespoons lemon juice.  Drizzle over cake.
WHEN BAKING AT HIGH ALTITUDES:  Stir 6 tbsp. flour into mix.  Mix as directed using 1 package vanilla instant pudding mix, 1/3 cup Crisco Oil*, 1 1/4 cups water, and 4 eggs.  Bake at 375 degrees for about 45-50 minutes.
*Be sure to use Crisco Oil as some other oils may cause the cake to fall.
