Plain Cake

Plain Cake

From How to Cook in Palestine

4 eggs
1 cupful of sugar
1 teaspoonful of rum
1 3/4 cupfuls (280 gr.) of semolina, mashed potatoes, or cooked and strained puree of beans (the latter cake tastes like chestnut cake)

Mix the yolks of the eggs with the sugar until creamy, stir in the other ingredients, the beaten whites of the eggs last.

Bake in well greased wonder pot for about an hour.

Cut the next day (not before) and fill generously with jam (any kind). Pour jam also over outside of cake and decorate with blanched almonds.
