Method

This excellent cake will be useful either for tea or served with a crème. Peel half a pound of almonds (and five or six bitter ones), pound them well; add four eggs, one at a time, mix; then two tablespoonfuls of ground rice, a piece of butter the size of an egg (it is advisable to cut it in small pieces) and about three tablespoonfuls of castor sugar; mix well together, add a sherry-glassful of kirschwasser and mix well again. Prepare a tin lined with buttered paper—the flat kind for open tarts being the best shape—put in your batter and cook it in a hot oven for about twenty-five minutes; let it get cold before you take it out of the tin.
