How to Make Vintage Nutmeg Feather Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat 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.
  • 2Sift together the flour, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, salt.
  • 3Add the flour mixture to the shortening mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Ending with flour. Blend in the vanilla.
  • 4Spread 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.
  • 5Frosting: - 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.
