Grafton cake. Layers and small cakes, recipe

Cream four tablespoons of butter with one and one-half cups of sugar,
beat in separately two whole eggs, add one cup of milk alternately with
two cups of flour in which has been sifted two teaspoons of
baking-powder, beat all thoroughly.

This recipe will make two layer-cakes which may be spread with any of
the cake fillings or icings.

To make small cakes omit one of the egg-whites, fill well-buttered gem
pans a little more than half full, and bake in a moderately hot oven
until a delicate brown. The white reserved may be beaten to a stiff
froth and then gradually stir in four tablespoons of powdered sugar and
the juice of half a lemon. When the cakes are cool, spread with the
icing and decorate with raisins, nut meats, one on top of each or
sprinkle with candied caraway seeds.
