FILLING

Rub butter into sifted flour, baking powder and salt. Add egg yolks and enough milk to make a stiff dough. Roll out thinly and line one large or two small cake pans.

To make filling, dissolve cornflour in a little of the milk and boil the remaining milk together with the sugar. Pour milk/sugar onto the cornflour mixture and cook for 3 minutes, stirring all the time. Stir in the butter.

Cool slightly then fold the stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour the mixture into lined cake pans, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, and bake in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes.
