"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
1 c. flour 1½ tsp. baking powder ½ tsp. salt 4 egg yolks beaten with 4 T. water 1 c. sugar lemon extract
Mix all. Add 4 beaten egg whites. Bake 350º for 30 minutes. Cool upside down (set ends of pan on cups).
This has never turned out for me since I have been married. It has always fallen out of the pan when it was cooling. But, I recently discovered that I was not baking it long enough. I had trouble reading my handwriting, as I was only a young girl when I first wrote the recipe and thought I wrote “20 minutes” instead of “30”. It works much better now that I am baking it longer.
This was a family favorite when I was a kid. We always ate it with whipped cream (no Cool Whip in those days). One summer Orland paid me 5 cents/week if I would make one of these every day. What a deal for me!
