Rich Seed Cake

1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 beaten egggs
1 tsp caraway seed
1/3 cup candied orange peel
pinch of nutmeg
1 cup flour
0.5 tsp baking powder
0.25 cup brandy OR
0.25 light cream

Cream together butter and sugar. Gradually add the beaten eggs and a
little flour at the same time to prevent curdling. Mix in the caraway
seed, candied peel and a pinch of nutmeg. Carefully incorporate the rest
of the flour sifted with the baking powder. A little brandy can be added
as liquid, but this is optional. Milk or light cream may be
substituted. The cake will keep longer with the brandy. Bake 1 hour at
400 degrees.
