Cocoanut Cake No .1

Take 5 eggs, 1 cup of almond meal, 1 cup of sugar, salt to taste, 1 tablespoonful of water, 1 cup of granular white flour (Pillsbury's Best). Beat the yolks and whites separately. To the beaten yolks add the sugar a little at a time, continually beating. Then add the salt to the whites, and beat until quite stiff, then add the water, and beat until it has a cooked appearance. Turn the whites into the yolk mixture, and fold in lightly, so as to not get the air out of the whites. Then fold in the nut meal in the same way as the whites of the eggs; lastly fold in the sifted flour. Work as little as possible after the nuts and flour are added, as it will make it heavy and tough. Bake on jelly tins, and when cool, use for a filling a cocoanut sauce as directed (see index). Sprinkle dessicated cocoanut on top.

Cocoanut Cake No. 2

Take 1/2 pound of grated cocoanut, 1/4 pound of granulated sugar, 1/2 pound of flour, 5 eggs, 1 tablespoonful of nutcoa, 1 pint of water, and 1 teaspoonful of flavoring if desired. Add the sugar slowly to the eggs, beating as you mix, then add the nutcoa and the other ingredients, leaving out about 1 cup of the grated cocoanut. Put in an oiled pie-tin, and bake.

When about half thickened, sprinkle over the top the cup of cocoanut, and brown well. Serve in the dish in which it was baked.
