Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup (3/8 lb.) butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Preparation

  1. 1. In a bowl, with a mixer at medium speed, beat butter and sugar until well blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating to blend well after each addition. Beat in milk and vanilla.
  2. 2. In another bowl, mix flour, cornmeal, baking powder, cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and beat at medium speed just until well blended.
  3. 3. Spread batter level in a buttered and floured 8- by 4 1/2-inch loaf pan.
