Accompany this briochelike cake with fresh fruit and preserves.

Sprinkle yeast over water in small bowl and let stand until dissolved; stir
to blend. Let stand until foamy.

Butter and flour 9-inch round cake pan. Combine flour, peel, salt,
cinnamon and nutmeg in heavy-duty mixer bowl. Add yeast mixture, whipping
cream and eggs and beat until smooth and elastic; dough will be sticky.
Transfer to prepared pan. Cover and let rise in warm draft-free area until
doubled in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake cake until pale golden, 15 to 20 minutes.

Using long serrated knife, split cake into two layers. Spread bottom layer
with Devon cream. Top with remaining layer. Serve cake immediately.
