Default Luci Baines Johnson's Wedding Cake (white fruit cake)

Luci Baines Johnson's Wedding Cake

Makes an 8-inch, 2-layer cake

1/2 cup seedless white raisins
1 3/4 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
5 egg whites
3/4 cup chopped candied pineapple
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cover raisins with brandy and let stand in refrigerator overnight. Preheat
oven to 300F. Line two 8-inch cake pans with greased paper and grease the
sides. Mix together flour with baking powder and salt; sift. In a large
mixing bowl, cream butter. Gradually add sugar, and cream until light and
fluffy. Beat in egg whites one at a time. Drain raisins; add to batter
with pineapple, walnuts, and extracts. Add dry ingredients to batter a
little at a time, beating after each addition; blend until smooth. Pour
cake batter into prepared pans and bake in preheated oven for 1 1/4 hours,
or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on wire racks
before frosting with seven-minute icing.

Seven-Minute Icing

Makes 2 cups

1 1/2 cups sugar
5 tablespoons cold water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon lemon extract

In the top of a double boiler, mix together all ingredients except lemon
extract. Cook over rapidly boiling water, beating constantly at high speed
with an electric hand mixer, until stiff peaks form, for about 7 minutes.
Remove from heat, add lemon extract, and beat for another minute. Let
cool slightly before icing cake (not too long, or icing will harden).
