Simple Bride Cake Cooking Recipe

Below is the quick and easy cooking recipe for Bride Cake.

Take 4 pounds of fresh butter, 2 pounds of loaf sugar, pounded and sifted fine, a quarter of an ounce of mace and the same quantity of nutmegs. To every pound of flour put 8 eggs. Wash and pick 4 pounds of currants, and dry them before the fire; blanch a pound of sweet almonds, and cut them lengthways very thin, a pound of citron, a pound of candied orange, a pound of candied lemon, and half pint of brandy; first work the butter to a cream. Then beat in your sugar a quarter of an hour; beat the white of your eggs to a very strong froth; mix them with your sugar and butter; beat the yolks half an hour at least, and mix them with your cake. Then put in your flour, mace, and nutmeg; keep beating it till your oven is ready. Put in your brandy; beat the currants and almonds lightly in. Tie 3 sheets12 of paper round the bottoms of your hoops, to keep it from running out. Rub it well with butter. Put in your cake and the sweetmeats in 3 layers, with cake between every layer. After it is risen and colored, cover it with paper.

It takes 3 hours baking.
