Mom and Auntie Margie, Marnie and I spent a night in a bed and breakfast in Perthshire, Scotland. Mrs. King, the landlady, served us this cake and then gave Auntie Margie the recipe. This was in 1977.

This recipe uses eggs, white sugar, butter and flour. However much you choose to make, weigh the ingredients so you have equal weights of each.

Cream the sugar and the butter . Beat in the eggs, and fold in the flour. Bake in a greased and floured pan at 375 deg. For about 20 min.

To use, split horizontally. Spread with jam and replace top. Dust with icing sugar. Can also serve with whipped cream.
