 Categories: Cakes, Christmas, Russian
   Servings: 10
       4 oz Butter
       4 lg Eggs
      14 oz Honey
      14 oz Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
            -; 3 Cups
     1/2 ts Ground Ginger
     1/2 ts Ground Nutmeg
     1/2 ts Ground Cloves
       1 ts Cinnamon
       2 ts Baking Powder
   Cream the butter and separate the eggs.  Add the room temperature yolks,
   one at a time, to the butter and beat well.  Mix in the honey.  Sift the
   flour, baking powder, and spices twice and add to the butter mixture.
   Whip the egg whites until stiff.  Fold a little of the egg whites into the
   batter, then add the rest of them, folding them gently into the batter.
   Pour the batter into a guttered and floured loaf pan.  Bake in a preheated
   350 Degrees F. oven until firm on top and a toothpick inserted in the
   center comes out clean, about 1 hour.  Cool, in the pan, for 10 minutes,
   then remove and finish cooling on a wire rack.
