Lane Cake

(from THE SOUTHERN HERITAGE CAKES COOKBOOK)

The preparation was unusual because the dough is very stiff and hard to beat, but then you fold 8 egg whites into it!  The result was a very light, moist cake.

Then there’s the yummy cooked filling which includes 8 egg yolks, maraschino cherries, pecans, raisins, coconut, and bourbon. 


The icing recipe was too tricky for Bryan and me so he ended up substituting a butter and cream icing – perfect!


This cookbook is worth buying . . . especially at the price online . . .

  a whole . . . penny!
