Here's a real, old-fashioned dish that your family will like just as much as ours does. Try to use freshly grated nutmeg.
1/3 cup soft butter or margarine
1-1/4 cups sugar
1-3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon lemon flavoring
Cream the butter or margarine with the sugar and egg. Add the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the milk. Beat for 2 minutes. Add the flavoring. Bake in an 8-inch greased pan for 25 minutes in a 375 degrees F oven.
Serve warm with Nutmeg Sauce (see below).
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
Combine the sugar and cornstarch and blend with the water. Cook in a double boiler over hot water, stirring until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter or margarine and nutmeg. Serve hot.
