    1 c. pancake flour (no substitutes)

    5 eggs, separated

    1 c. flour

    Pinch of salt

    3 caps vanilla

    2 tbsp. oil

    Separate eggs, beat whites until stiff. Add remaining ingredients to the egg yolks and mix well. The batter will be very thick. Fold in beaten egg whites.

    Cook at 350 degrees for 25 minutes over boiling water. An electric fry pan with a rack in the bottom of it will work. Makes one 9-inch cake pan size.

Before serving, sift powdered sugar over cake.

    COMMENTARY: In steaming foods, condensed steam can be prevented from dripping into the item being steamed by placing a dish cloth under the lid.
