Louise Cake

Now we had a meeting the other day with Chris who writes all our label descriptions amongst other things.She frontsup with all her notes and a cake tin full of. Now if you had a 30 year old mulberry in your garden you'd remember your mother making louise cake LOl so I dredged out the good ole Edmonds cook book so that you too could taste a blast from the past.Its meant to be made with raspberry jam but you you could use some of that home made plum jam instead.

65g Butter
25g Sugar
2 Egg yolks
150g Flour
1 tspn baking powder

Cream butter and sugar, add egg yolks, then sifted flour and baking powder. Press into greased sponge roll tin and spread with jam.

2 egg whites
125g Sugar
50g Coconut

Beat egg whites until quite stiff, add sugar and coconut, fold together and spread on top of the jam. Bake 30 minutes at 180 degrees
