  • 1 Pound A.P. Flour
  • 1 Pound Sugar
  • 1 Pound Butter
  • 12 Eggs
  • 1/4 TSP Nutmeg
  • 1/2 TSP Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Brandy

Procedure:  Butter 2 (6-cup) loaf pans and line them with parchment or waxed paper. In a mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, cream the butter until very light and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Add the sugar and mix. Working 2 at a time, add the egg yolks, mixing well between each addition. The mixture should be very fluffy. Add the brandy, nutmeg, and salt and mix to incorporate. Working in 3 batches, add the flour, mixing just until combined and scraping down the bowl between additions. In a clean dry bowl, whip the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Add to the batter and mix well, until no streaks of egg white remain. If necessary, fold in the last few streaks by hand. Pour the batter into the prepared pans and smooth the tops. Bake until golden brown on 325 degrees for 70-80 minutes and split on the top.  Let cool in the pan for 30 minutes. Knock the cake out of the pan and let cool.
