In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, oil, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and beat until smooth. In a small bowl, combine flour and baking powder; mix well and set aside. Combine milk with extracts and flavors. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternating with milk mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Spoon mixture into prepared cake pan.

Bake in preheated 325 degrees F (160 C) oven for 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours or until cake tests done. Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes. Turn cake out of pan onto wire rack; invert again. Place waxed paper under rack to catch glaze drippings. Slowly spoon glaze onto top of hot cake and let glaze drizzle down sides of cake. Let cool completely.
