Make a good layer cake or Cup Cake. Beat the whites of three eggs to a stiff froth. Add three tablespoonfuls of sugar, and one cup of minced and pounded Pecans. Add one teaspoonful of Extract of Lemon, and fill the Cake, leaving a layer of the filling on top. This is a typical Creole Cake. Instead of mincing the Pecans for the layers, some cooks shell them in halves. This is a matter of taste.
