Joy of Cooking Fruit cake recipe -- help!

I am looking for a fruitcake recipe that was in the Joy of Cooking cookbook 1975 edition. It has 12 eggs and the whites are beaten separately and added to the batter. Can you help?

      I have the 1975 edition. There is a Dark Fruit Cake #I that uses 15 eggs with the whites beaten separately. That's the only fruit cake that uses near that many eggs.

      Here's a link to it:

        That's it! Thank you so very much. I have not made this cake in years and I had a request from a family member to make it. My book was lost in a move a long time ago. You are an absolute lifesaver.
