    Is there a step missing? Should the butter be creamed with the sugar before adding the eggs? I'd like to make this but I'm worried there's a step missing. Thanks!

    This recipe sounds wonderful - a must try. Also, I love the bit of history re. the pan and will happily use my NordicWare bundt pan for it. Somehow the history makes this extra special.
