Sponge-Cake No. 3


  • 10 eggs
  • 1 pound of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 pound of flour
  • juice and grated rind of 1/2 lemon


Beat the yolks and sugar together for at least half an hour. It will not be right unless thoroughly beaten; add the lemon, then the whites beaten very stiff, and the flour last; sprinkle the top with sugar. Put it at once into a moderate oven. This is a moist cake and has a thick crust.
