Preheat oven to 150 C / Gas 2. Lightly grease and flour a 26cm tube cake tin.
Cream margarine, butter and sugar until light and fluffy (for best results use an electric mixer). This will take a while. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in almond extract.
Combine baking powder, flour and cornflour. Stir into creamed mixture alternately with the milk, starting and ending with flour. Pour batter into prepared tin.
Bake in preheated oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in tin for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
