Medianyk (honey Cake)
Unbleached All-Purpose Flour,
; 3 Cups
Cream the butter and separate the eggs. Add the room temperature yolks, one at a time, to the butter and beat well. Mix in the honey. Sift the flour, baking powder, and spices twice and add to the butter mixture. Whip the egg whites until stiff. Fold a little of the egg whites into the batter, then add the rest of them, folding them gently into the batter.
Pour the batter into a guttered and floured loaf pan. Bake in a preheated 350 Degrees F. oven until firm on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool, in the pan, for 10 minutes, then remove and finish cooling on a wire rack.
