     Kentucky Christmas Cake

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

1 cup soft butter
1/4 teaspoon soda
1 1/2 cups sugar
5 large eggs, separated
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 teaspoons nutmeg
1/4 cup bourbon whisky
1 lb. pecans, coarsely chopped
1/2 lb. raisins, cut in half

Grease a 10" tube pan with 1 tablespoon of the butter. Dust with flour, and tap to remove excess. Sift 11/2 cups sifted flour, soda and 3/4 cup of the sugar into bowl. Add remaining butter, and mix in well with fingers. Add egg yolks, one at a time, mixing with the fingers until well blended. Beat egg whites with salt until stiff, but not dry. Gradually beat in remaining 3/4 cup sugar; fold in cream of tartar. Add to first mixture, and fold in with hands until whites are thoroughly mixed in. Add 2 teaspoons nutmed soaked 10 minutes in 1/4 cup bourbon whisky. Warm pecans and raisins in oven. Dredge with 1/4 cup sifted flour and coat well. Fold into cake batter.
Spoon into pan. Bake in moderate oven, 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until done. Let stand in pan 30 minutes on rack. Remove to waxed-paper-covered rack to cool. Turn right side up. Store air-tight. If desired, cake can be decorated before baking with candied cherries and pecan halves.
