    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour two 23cm round cake tins. Sieve flour, baking powder, nutmeg and salt together and set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, cream sugar and margarine until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture alternately with milk. Stir in nuts.
    3. In a separate clean bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Quickly but gently fold into the batter.
    4. Divide batter into prepared tins. Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 25 to 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean.


    If you can get your hands on hickory nuts, use these instead of pecans.
