24 Jul

p.287

Those having any curiosity to gratify upon their own part, or on the part of riends, will be highly pleased with the contrast seen when they take a piece of cake made in two parts, dark and light, as follows:

LIGHT PART–White sugar 1 1/2 cups; butter 1/2 cup; sweet milk 1/2 cup; soda 1/2 teaspoon; cream of tartar 1 teaspoon; whites of 4 eggs; flour 2 1/2 cups; beat and mixed as “Gold Cake.”

Dark Part–Brown sugar 1 cup; molasses 1/2 cup; butter 1/2 cup; sour milk 1/2 cup; soda 1/2 teaspoon; cream of tartar 1 teaspoon; flour 2 1/2 cups; yolks of 4 eggs; cloves, allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg, ground, of each 1/2 table-spoon; beat and mixed as “Gold Cake.”

DIRECTIONS.–When each part is ready, drop a spoon of dark, then a spoon of light, over the bottom of the dish, in which it is to be baked, and so proceed to fill up the pan dropping the light upon the dark as you continue with the different layers.
