 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Sugar
  • 1 lb Flour
  • 1 lb Butter
  • 10 Egg
  • 1/2 ts Nutmeg
  • Brandy


Work butter and sugar together until very creamy. Add eggs, one at a time,
alternately with the flour. Each egg should be worked in for at least 5
minutes. Work this way for 1 hour. Should there be any flour left, add it
to the mixture. Add the nutmeg and a wine glass of brandy. Put into a very
deep pan, lined on sides and bottom with greased paper. Bake at 325-F on
small stand in lower part of oven for 2 hours. If coal stove is used, watch
the fire very carefully. The oven temperature must not rise or fall
suddenly. Source: Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book - Fine Old Recipes, Culinary
