Black Walnut Christmas Cake
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat
in egg yolks all at once. Add vanilla. Sift dry
ingredients together. Set aside 1 cup of the dry
ingredients. Add the remaining flour mixture and the
milk in small portions, alternately, mixing well with
each addition, starting and ending with an addition of
the dry ingredients. Mix together, the reserved flour
and the nuts, and stir into the batter, mixing just
until blended. Beat the egg whites until stiff, but
not dry. Fold them into the batter. Bake in a 9 X 5 X
3" greased and floured loaf pan, or 3 quart mold at
350 degrees about 50 to 60 minutes, or until done.
Frost with your favorite icing.
