Date: 11 Jan 1995 12:13:32 -0000 The classic version in US measure, but if you are European and have a scale, define 1 lb = 500g and be slightly generous with the flavorings (1# = 454g). I think my family originally got this from Margaret Rudkin's cookbook.
Beat eggwhites until very foamy, add half the sugar and beat until stiff but not dry. Cream butter and remaining sugar, beat in egg yolks, and stir in flour. Fold in eggwhites and pour into buttered and floured pan. Bake at 350F until toothpick comes out clean. Makes one large tube pan, 2 loaves, or numerous cupcakes.
Good with fruit or chocolate, but don't try to frost, somehow the flavor clashes with the standard frostings.
