Blend the paste, sugar,salt,and first eggs.
Cream in the Butter
Add remaining eggs slowly and cream.
Add Vanilla and cream more
Stir in nuts.
Sift meal and starch together, add to the other batter and mix till smooth.
****** double and triple check the weight of the cake Meal. Twice now I have either
forgotten it, or didn't put in enough. 4/22/05 I put in only a pound instead of the full
pound and a quarter. Result was acceptable, but very thin. There's also a risk that
the batter will spread off the sheet pan **************
Scale and shape
Can egg-wash tops, or brush with sugar and nuts.
Bake at 350.
Slice while warm, and separate the slices. Return to oven and bake till hard.
Ten eggs are approximately the quantity needed
I divided the batter into two batches. Each batch fits nicely onto the large sheet pan.
To one of the batches (one sheetpan worth) I added .15# cocoa to make chocolate
Started around 6:30, and was still baking first bake at 11:30. Now I made three batches, so it took longer, but way too late.
