only, a pint of ale yest, one ounce of cinnamon finely beaten, one ounce

an hour and a quarter. The oven should be as hot as for a manchet.

and bake in three layers. For the filling, boil three cups of powdered
sugar and three-quarters of a cup of water for five minutes. Beat four
eggs, the yolks and whites together, and into them stir the boiling
syrup, add two cups of chopped raisins and two cups of almonds,
chopped and blanched. Flavor with vanilla and spread thickly between
the layers of cake. Cover with white frosting.

teaspoonful of baking powder. Bake in a moderate oven.

with a little pepper and salt, mix into a batter with eggs, form into
thin cakes and fry.
SIESTA CAKE.Take one pound of butter, warm it over the fire with a little milk,
put it into a pan with a pound of flour, six eggs, a quarter of a
pound of sweet almonds finely pounded, and two table-spoonsful of
yeast; beat these ingredients well together into a light paste, and
set it before the fire to rise, butter the inside of a pan, and fill
it with alternate layers of the paste, and of pounded almonds, sugar,
citron, and cinnamon; when baked, and while hot, make holes through
the siesta with a small silver skewer, taking care not to break it,
and pour over clarified sugar till it is perfectly soaked through.
CINNAMON CAKES.Rub half a pound of fresh butter into a pound of flour; work it well
together, then add half a pound of sifted sugar, and a tea-spoonful of
pounded cinnamon, and make it into a paste, with three eggs; roll it,
and cut into small cakes, with tin cutters.
RICH PLUM CAKE.Beat to a cream one pound of butter, to which add the same quantity of
sifted loaf sugar and of fine flour, the whites of ten eggs beaten to
a froth, and the yolks of the same also beaten till quite smooth
and thin, and half a nutmeg grated; lastly, work in one pound of
well-washed currants, half a pound of mixed candied peels, cut small,
and a glass of brandy; bake for two hours.

ounces of flour well dried and sifted, a little lemon-juice and grated

currants; make these into a paste with a couple of eggs, add a little
