Brides Cake. Mrs. J. J. Sloan. Recipe

Brides Cake, also commonly known as White Wedding Cake, is a classic and elegant dessert that has been a staple at weddings for centuries. This cake is known for its light and fluffy texture, which is achieved by using a combination of butter, sugar, and eggs. The addition of corn starch adds a unique touch to the cake, making it even more tender and moist. With a hint of lemon extract, this cake has a delicate citrus flavor that pairs perfectly with its sweet and buttery taste.

Interestingly, the tradition of serving a white cake at weddings dates back to ancient Rome, where it symbolized purity and fertility. The white color of the cake became associated with weddings, and it has been a popular choice ever since.

Now, let's take a look at the recipe for Mrs. J. J. Sloan's Brides Cake:

Ingredients:
- 2 cups of butter
- 4 cups of pulverized sugar
- 2 cups of sweet milk
- 2 scant cups of corn starch
- 4 heaping cups of flour
- Whites of 12 eggs
- 1 tablespoon of lemon extract
- 3 heaping teaspoons of baking powder

Instructions:
1. Preheat your oven to a moderate temperature.

2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

3. Separate the egg whites and beat them until stiff peaks form.

4. Gradually add the beaten egg whites to the butter and sugar mixture, gently folding them in.

5. In a separate bowl, combine the sweet milk, corn starch, and sifted flour with baking powder.

6. Slowly add the milk mixture to the butter and sugar mixture, alternating with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined; avoid overmixing.

7. Stir in the lemon extract to give the cake a light citrus flavor.

8. The batter should have a stiff consistency, similar to pound cake. If needed, adjust the amount of flour according to the size of your eggs.

9. Grease and flour your cake pans. Pour the batter evenly into the pans.

10. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

11. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely before removing it from the pans.

This recipe yields a generous amount of cake, enough for a large cake or two moderate-sized ones. Feel free to decorate it as desired, using buttercream frosting, fondant, or any other cake decor that suits the occasion.
