Butter, 1 pound,

Granulated sugar, 1 pound,

Eggs, 10,

Grated lemon-rind, 1,

Seeded raisins, 1 pound,

Citron, thinly sliced, 1 pound,

English walnut kernels, 1/2 pound,

Flour, 1 pound,

Soda, 1/2 teaspoon,

Nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon,

Brandy, or rum, 1/4 cup,

Mix the same as a pound cake, beating long and hard before adding the fruit. It is better to use pastry flour, and sift it twice. Reserve a part of the sliced citron to stick in the top of the batter after it is in the pan.
