3 cups sifted all−purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup soft butter
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup cider
Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.
Set aside. Work butter and sugar together as
thoroughly as possible (mixture is never really
smooth) and beat in the eggs. Stir in flour mixture and
cider, alternating them, beginning and ending with
flour. Spoon into a greased loaf pan and bake at
350 degrees F for about 1 hour or until wooden pick
inserted in the center comes out dry. Cool.
To serve, cut into thin slices.
