Gateau de l’Ange Gabriel or Gabriel’s Cake

Since Gabriel is used to hearing from me I had to post this family favorite in His honor. Merci beaucoup, Monsieur

1 cup butter
2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup white pulverized sugar
8 egg whites ( farm eggs preferred )
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

Beat the egg whites until a stiff froth. Add the baking powder to flour and sift 3 times. Sift the sugar 3 times. Beat the butter to cream with the sugar. Gradually add the flour, beating all the while and the extract. Lastly add the whites which must be very stiff. Mix all together and bake in moderately hot oven. About half an hour.
