Christmas Cake Recipe

Ingredients
  • 2 cups sifted cake flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1-1/2 cups unsalted butter (3 sticks), at room temperature, plus more for greasing
  • 1-2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 3 large egg yolks, at room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar (optional)
  • Stuart Little
  • This Christmas (2007)

Method
Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease and lightly flour a 9-inch tube pan with 3-1/2-inch sides (or, my preference, use a nonstick pan of the same size but don't grease and flour it). Resift the flour along with the baking powder, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and salt into a bowl. In another bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed, beat the butter until it's soft and very pliant, about 1 minute (or 4 to 6 minutes by hand with a wooden spoon).

Gradually add the granulated sugar and beat on high speed until the mixture is pale and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes (or 6 to 8 minutes by hand). One at a time, add the 4 whole eggs and beat on high speed until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 2 minutes (or 5 minutes by hand).
