 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8       lg           Eggs
      1/2   lb           Sugar
      1/4   lb           Butter, sweet
    7       oz           Flour, cake
        Preheat oven to 350 F.
        Melt the butter over low heat and set it aside.
        Mix the eggs and sugar together and place them in
   a double boiler, stirring constantly by hand until the
   sugar has dissolved and the mixture is lukewarm.  Beat
   the mixture for about 5 minutes in a mixer on high
   speed until tripled in volume and pale ivory in color.
        Sift the flour twice, then gradually sift the
   flour over the mixture, folding it in gently.  Add the
   cooled butter at the last and fold gently but quickly.
        Butter and flour the sides and bottoms of two
   9-inch springform pans.  Pour the mixture into the
   pans.  Bake in a 350 F oven for about 20 minutes.
   Remove the cakes from the pans and cool on racks.
