  Categories: Cakes
       Yield: 1 servings
       1 c  Cake Flour
   2 1/2 ts Baking Powder
     1/4 ts Salt
     1/4 c  Butter
   1 1/4 c  Sugar
     1/2 ts Vanilla
       4    Eggs, Separated
     1/3 c  Half & Half
     2/3 c  Almonds, Blanched
       1    Lemon Filling (See Recipe)
   Sift flour, measure and then resift three times with baking powder and
   salt.  Cream butter and gradually add 1/2 cup of sugar, creaming until
   smooth and fluffy.  Add vanilla, then egg yolks one at a time,
   beating well after each.  Add flour mixture and Half & Half
   alternately, stirring well after each addition.  Spread batter in two
   8 layer pans, bottoms lined with greased thin plain paper.  Bake in
   350øF oven for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, beat egg whites until foamy,
   add remaining 3/4 cup sugar gradually and beat until stiff. Spread
   quickly over the 15 minute baked cake, sprinkle sliced almonds on top
   and return to the oven for 15 more minutes (or until the meringue is
   richly browned). Cool thoroughly in pans on cake racks. Remove from
   pans carefully. Place one layer on plate, meringue side down. Spread
   with lemon filling, top with remaining layer meringue side up. Recipe
