Singing Cake

This was sent to me by a friend I met on the 'net, Gypsy.

  •  1 c Butter
  •  2 c Brown sugar
  •  2 t Baking powder mixed in
  •  1 c Buttermilk
  •  1 c Raisins (I'd have to omit these for Pete - he hates raisins!)
  •  2 t Cinnamon
  •  2 Sq. bitter chocolate, melted
  •  3 Eggs, separated 
  •  1 c Strawberry jam
  •  1 c Chopped nuts
  •  4 c Sifted flour 
  •  1 t Cloves

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and stir. Add melted chocolate and stir. Add raisins and stir. Add cinnamon, cloves, flour and stir. Add nuts and jam and stir.

Now add the baking powder and buttermilk and quickly add to the cake mixture and stir. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Quickly pour mixture into greased and floured angel food cake pan. Bake at 350 F until cake stops singing, about 45 minutes.

Make sure you time the recipe so your guests are present during the baking. Once cake is baked the effect is over.
