ALMOND JELLY CAKE
MRS. GEORGE KLING
Three coffee-cups sugar, one heaping coffee-cup butter, and the yolks of six eggs, beaten together to a cream; five even cups sifted flour, four teaspoonfuls baking powder; one and one-half cups sweet milk; the whites of the six eggs beaten to a stiff froth, and added last; with one teaspoonful lemon flavoring. Bake in layers.
ALMOND SAUCE FOR FILLING.--Three pounds almonds, blanched and pounded to a paste, one and one-half coffee-cups fresh, pure sour cream, one and one-half coffee-cups sugar, four eggs (whites and yolks beaten thoroughly together). Stir all together, and add vanilla enough to drown the taste of sour cream.
