eggs, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/2 cups flour. Allow this mixture to stand in a
warm place until light. Then roll out pieces 6 by 8 by 1 inch thick and
place in greased oblong pans. When cakes are ready to be put into the oven,
brush top of cake with melted butter. Strew over the tops of the cakes the
topping mixture. This mixture should be rubbed through a coarse sieve. Bake
