Work butter until creamy, then gradually work in the sugar until mixture looks and feels fluffy.
Stir in caraway seeds and beat in egg yolks, one at a time, beating hard after each addition.
Add flour and brandy, alternately, and fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites, gently but thoroughly.
Spoon batter into a greased and lightly floured 9 inch tube pan.
Sprinkle caraway comfits or coarsely crushed lump sugar on top.
Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 1 hour or until cake pulls away from sides of pan.
Cool in pan about 10 minutes, then turn out onto cake rack, and cool completely.
A day or two of mellowing, with the cake tightly wrapped, develops the delicious caraway flavor.
