Please, would you explain the Puerto Rican Amaretto Cake Recipe below:

Is it ½ cup margarine or 1 cup of butter ???? I assume it cannot be both, right?

1/2 Cup Margarine
1 Cup Butter
3 Cups Sifted Flour
4 Large Eggs ( Separated)
2 TSP Baking Powder ( if using a non- self rising cake four)
1 Cup Evaporated Milk ( do not dilute)
1 Cup Sugar
1 TSP Almond Extract
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
3 Ounces OR 1 small trial size bottle of Amaretto Liquor

It would help if you also post the mixing directions. That will tell you if both the butter and margarine are being used, and how.

This is the last cake I made but I put all vanilla instead of the Amaretto by mistake so I can't tell you how it tasted but the texture was very nice for me. I did use both butter and margarine

Is this 4 sticks of butter + 2 sticks of margarine to be added to 3 cups of flour????? If so, please recommend flour brand name that blends well with so much margarine + butter????

Mixing instructions are written below:

I had to edit, I mesed up with the cups. I cup of butter is 2 sticks so it's 2 sticks of butter and 1 stick margarine. I use the regular all purpose flour that I buy at Sam's Club, sifted but I really can't tell you if a different brand would make a difference since I messed up with the flavor...
