Cream cake

This recipe was found in my Great-Grandmother, Anna (Simmon) Fox’s recipe book. My grandfather, John Fox, told me it was his favorite cake. Probably because of the whipped cream frosting. One year for his birthday, I made it for him. The recipe didn’t have any instructions, so I just guessed. It turned out okay. I really should try it again. If you do let me know how it comes out!

2 egg
1 Cup sour cream
1 Cup sugar
1 Tablespoon butter
1 Cup cream
1 3/4 Cups sifted flour
1 Teaspoon cream of tartar
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon nutmeg
salt
a little baking powder

Sift dry ingredients together. This will be a second sifting for the flour. Mix sour cream, sugar and butter until smooth and sugar is dissolved. Add eggs one at a time. Mix well in between each egg. Add half of the dry ingredients and mix. Add half-cup of cream and mix. Add remaining dry ingredients and mix. Add remaining cream and mix. Pour into two – round cake pans. Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until done.

Frost with whipped cream.
