Trim off the crusts from thin slices of sour-sweet bread, moisten the slices in Muscat de Lunel wine,* dry the slices in the oven without letting them burn, and then grind and sieve the crumbs. Beat 10 egg yolks until white with 1 glass sugar, add ½ teaspoon ground cardamom, ¼ lb finely chopped candied orange peel No. 2,** and ¼ lb, or glass, ground sieved rusks; and mix everything together. Add 10 beaten egg whites, mix, pour into a pan, and bake.
