Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat eggs until very light and fluffy. Add sugar gradually while beating.
  3. Sift together flour, spices and baking powder. Fold this into the egg mixture gently, so as not to deflate eggs.
  4. In a small saucepan, heat butter and water over low heat until butter has melted. Once butter melts, bring to a boil and add while still boiling hot to the batter (first mixture). Combine thoroughly.
  5. Butter a 7 3/4 inch tube pan and sprinkle evenly with the bread crumbs. Pour cake batter into pan.
  6. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 45-50 minutes or until cake tests done.
  7. Serve unfrosted or dusted with icing sugar.
