4 eggs (whisk)
sugar, butter, and flour
1/4 spoonful of salt
a layer of any kind of jam or marmalade
2 square cake pans
Beat the butter to a cream; dredge in the flour and sugar; stir these ingredients well together, and add the eggs, which should be previously thoroughly whisked. When the mixture has been well beaten for about 10 minutes, butter the cake pans, pour half the batter in each pan and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Test cake to see if done, if not bake for a few more minutes.
Let them cool, spread one cake with a layer of nice preserve, place the other cake over it, press the pieces slightly together, and then cut it into long finger-pieces; pile them in crossbars on a glass dish, and serve.
Time: 20 minutes.
Sufficient for 5 or 6 persons
