Old Fashioned Hickory Nut Cake
Of all the nut cakes there is none better than this old-fashioned one. Cream together one and one-half cups of fine granulated or pulverized sugar and one-half cup of butter. Add three-fourths of a cup of sweet milk, two and one-half cups of flour sifted with two teaspoons of baking powder and one cup of hickory nut meats dredged lightly with flour. Lastly add one-half teaspoon of vanilla and fold in the whites of four eggs beaten to a stiff froth.
