(Cakes) - (The International Jewish Cook Book)

Rub to a cream one-half cup of butter with one and one-half cups of
pulverized sugar and add gradually the yolks of three eggs, one at a
time, and one-half cup of sweet milk. Sift two cups of flour with one
teaspoon of baking-powder, add alternately with the milk and the
stiffly-beaten whites of three eggs. Add the grated peel of one-half
lemon and the juice of one lemon. Bake in moderate oven thirty minutes.

Other Recipes


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.

Other Recipes


2 cups granulated sugar.
3 eggs (not separated, but added one at a time to the sugar
and shortening which had been creamed together).
1 scant cup butter and lard, mixed.
2 teaspoonfuls baking powder.
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoonful sweet milk.
Grated rind of 2 lemons and juice of one.
Stiffen the dough with about 3-1/2 cups flour and use about 1 extra
cup of flour to dredge the bake-board when rolling out dough and for
sifting over the greased baking sheets so the cakes will come off
readily. Roll dough very thin and cut in any desired shape. From this
recipe may be made 100 small cakes. The baking sheet (for which I gave
measurements in bread recipe) holds 20 of these small round cakes. Do
all young housewives know that if dough for small cakes be mixed the
day before baking and stood in a cool place, the cakes can be cut out
more easily and the dough may be rolled thinner, and as less flour may
then be used, the cakes will be richer?
Aunt Sarah always cut these cakes with a small round or heart-shaped
cutter and when all were on the baking sheet she either placed a half
of an English walnut meat in the centre of each cake or cut out the
centre of each small cake with the top of a pepper box lid before
baking them.

Stir in the yolks of five well-beaten eggs. Dissolve one teaspoon of

possible four teacups of flour, and put in pan. Bake about one-half
