Good Sponge Cake

Beat together the yelks of ten eggs, with a pound of powdered white

sugar--beat to a stiff froth the whites of the eggs, and stir them into

the yelks and sugar. Beat the whole ten or fifteen minutes, then stir in

gradually three-quarters of a pound of sifted flour. Flavor it with a

nutmeg, or the grated rind of a lemon. Bake it as soon as the flour and

spices are well mixed in.
