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 egg
  • 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).

    For the cake part I used a lemon cake mix. The sauce I used skim milk instead of water. It turned out real well for a guy cook.
