How to Make Vintage Nutmeg Feather Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Spray a 9 x 13 baking pan with non stick cooking spray

    In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, shortening and sugar until well blended. Add the eggs and beat well.
  2. Sift together the flour, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, salt.
  3. Add the flour mixture to the shortening mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Ending with flour. Blend in the vanilla.
  4. Spread into prepared baking pan.

    Bake for 25 - 35 minutes, or until cake is golden and tests done with a pick.

    Cool and serve with frosting or as my Gram did, with a pat of butter while warm.
  5. Frosting: - If you like a lot of frosting you may want to double the recipe...I just frost as served...

    Whip the cream cheese on high for 1 minute until fluffy. Add vanilla and slowly stir in the confectioner’s sugar. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches the right consistency. The icing will be thick but pourable.
