DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Butter and flour an angel food pan or bundt pan.
  • Cream butter and sugar.
  • Drop in eggs, one at a time, and stir after each addition.
  • Sift flour, baking powder and nutmeg together, reserving 1/4 cup flour to dredge the nuts.
  • Add the flour mixture, bourbon, almond and vanilla alternately.
  • Flour the nuts, dates and coconut; fold into cake batter.
  • Pour this mixture into the cake pan.
  • Cover the cake with foil for the first few hours of the baking period, removing the foil at your discretion depending on how brown you want it to become.
  • Place a pan of water in the oven to prevent cracking.
  • Bake the cake for six hours-- Yes! That really is 250 degrees for 6 hours!
  • Note: You might want to add more bourbon if 1 cup is not enough as some people really like it soaked.
