Cream the butter until soft and then cream in the sugars, a little at a time, until smooth. Beat the egg yolks; add to the butter mixture. Stir in the lemon juice.
  3. Mix the currants, raisins, and nuts with the dry ingredients. Add to the batter, alternately with the whiskey. Beat the egg whites with the salt until they form peaks. Gently but thoroughly fold into the batter.
  4. Divide the batter between the prepared loaf pans. Bake for 2 hours, or until the cakes pull away from the sides of the pans.
