Nutmeg Feather Cake
- 1/4 cup butter, softened 1/4 cup shortening 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 eggs 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup buttermilk
1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each one. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk until just blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
3 Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake springs back when pressed lightly in the center. Cool completely before frosting.
