ATHENIAN WALNUT CAKE
This maybe served with coffee or as a dessert

4 Tbs butter
5 oz sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
4 eggs
8 oz walnuts, chopped
8oz sifted flour

6oz sugar
10 fl oz water
4 fl oz brandy

Pre-heat the oven to 350 F. Grease a med-sized loaf or cake tin
with a little butter and dust with flour.

In a med-sized mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar together with
a wooden spoon until they are well cream.

Separate the yolks from the whites aside. Add the yolks, one at
a time, to the creamed butter and sugar and mix thoroughly.

Beat the egg whites until they are stiff. Add half the egg whites
and the cinnamon to the creamed mixture and mix well.

Set aside 2 Tbs of the crushed walnuts..Mix the rest off the walnuts
and flour together and gradually to the creamed mixture, mixing
thoroughly. Fold in the remaining egg whites.

Put the mixture in the loaf or cake tin and sprinkle the top with
the remaining 2 Tbs of crushed walnuts. Bake for 1 1/4 hrs. or
until the cake is cooked when a skewer comes out dry when tested.
If skewer is clean the cake is done.

Remove the cake from the tin and place it upside down in a deep
dish. With a skewer, pierce the bottom of the cake all over. Pour
the hot syrup slowly over the cake while it is still hot.

To make the syrup, dissolve the sugar in the water in a small
saucepan over a low heat and boil rapidly until the syrup thickens.
Remove from the heat and mix in the brandy.

Set the cake aside to cool and to absorb the syrup. Turn tne cake
right side up and serve cold.
