6 \N Egg whites
½ teaspoon Vanilla extract
1½ cup Sugar
½ teaspoon Cinnamon powder
10 \N Egg yolks
½ teaspoon Nutmeg
1⅓ cup Butter
½ teaspoon Allspice powder

Beat the egg whites with one-third of the sugar and, in a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks with another third. Soften the butter and cut into small pieces, them mix this with the remaining sugar and beat until light and creamy. Place the three mixtures into one large bowl, add the flour and vanilla extract and blend thoroughly.

Pour one-third of the spiced mixture into a well-greased cake tin and bake in a moderate oven until firm, then add half the plain mixture and bake until this is also firm.
