2 tablespoons baking powder

1 lemon rind and juice

Frosting:

1 pound sweet butter

1 pound powdered sugar

1 egg yolk*

6 tablespoons cocoa

2 tablespoons cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups crushed walnuts

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Beat egg yolks well, about 4 to 6 minutes. Add sugar and continue beating well, another 4 to 6 minutes. Sift together the flour and the baking powder. Gradually add dry ingredients and lemon juice and rind to wet mix. Beat egg whites to medium peaks and fold into batter. Butter and flour 3 (9-inch) cake rounds.

With a serrated knife, slice each cake into 3 layers.
