Here’s a real, old-fashioned dish that your family will like just as much as ours does. Try to use freshly grated nutmeg.
Cream the butter or margarine with the sugar and egg. Add the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the milk. Beat for 2 minutes. Add the flavoring. Bake in an 8-inch greased pan for 25 minutes in a 375 degrees F oven. Serve warm with Nutmeg Sauce (see below).
Combine the sugar and cornstarch and blend with the water. Cook in a double boiler over hot water, stirring until thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter or margarine and nutmeg. Serve hot.
