Required: Two eggs.

Four ounces of cornflour.

Three ounces of butter.

Three ounces of castor sugar.

Quarter of a teaspoonful of baking-powder.

The rind of half a lemon.

Sieve together the cornflour and baking-powder. Grate the lemon-rind on to the sugar. Put the butter and sugar in a basin, and beat it to a cream, add the eggs one by one, beating each in well; next stir in the cornflour lightly. Have ready some greased patty-tins, and fill each half full of the mixture. Put them in a moderate oven and bake for about a quarter of an hour, or until the mixture is set and a pale brown. Let these cakes cool in the tins, otherwise they will probably break, as they are extremely light.
