FRAU SCHMIDT'S LEMON CAKE

(German) - (Pennsylvania Germans)







1-1/2 cups sugar.
1/2 cup butter and lard.
3 small eggs or 2 large ones.
1/2 cup sweet milk.
2 cups flour.
1/2 teaspoonful saleratus.
1 teaspoonful cream of tartar.
Grated yellow rind and juice of half a lemon.
Beat sugar and butter to a cream and add the yolks of eggs. Add the
milk, then the flour and cream of tartar and saleratus; and the
flavoring. Lastly, the stiffly-beaten whites of eggs.
This makes one loaf cake. The original of this recipe was a very old
one which Frau Schmidt had used many years. Every ingredient in the
old recipe was doubled, except the eggs, when five were used. Mary
thought this cake fine and from the recipe, when she used half the
quantity of everything, she baked a fine loaf cake, and from the
original recipe was made one good sized loaf and one layer cake.
Thinly sliced citron added to this cake is a great improvement.
