A Very Rich Cake

(Confectionary.) - (The Lady's Own Cookery Book)

Two pounds and a half of fresh butter, twenty-four eggs, three-pounds of

flour, one pound and a half of sugar, one ounce of mixed spice, four

pounds of currants, half a jar of raisins, half of sweet almonds, a

quarter of a pound of citron, three quarters of orange and lemon, one

gill of brandy, and one nutmeg. First work the butter to a cream; then

beat the sugar well in; whisk the eggs half an hour; mix them with the

butter and sugar; put in the spice and flour; and, when the oven is

ready, mix in the brandy, fruit, and sweetmeats. It will take one hour

and a half beating. Let it bake three hours.
