Directions

Cream the butter, flour, baking soda, and lemon juice. In a separate bowl beat egg whites until stiff and add the powdered sugar. Combine the two mixtures and beat until smooth. Add the almond extract and mix well. Fold in the nuts and fruits. Pour into a well-greased and floured springform pan. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour. Cool completely then wrap in cheesecloth soaked in amaretto, wrap inside of foil and place in refrigerator. The longer this ages the better the cake will be. Resoak the cheesecloth every 2 weeks.
