Margaret's Own Cake

1 cup of flour.
1 pinch of salt.
1/2 teaspoonful of lemon-juice, or vanilla.
Separate the eggs, and beat the yolks very light and foamy; then put in the
sugar which you have sifted, a little at a time, and the flour in the same
way, but put them in in turn, first sugar, then flour, and so on. Then put
in the flavoring, and last fold in the whites of the eggs, beaten very
Bake in a buttered pan.
