1/2 lb. butter, softened
3 c. sugar
6 egg yolks, beaten
3 c. all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
1 (8 oz.) carton commercial sour cream
1/4 tsp. soda
6 egg whites, stiffly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
Cream butter and sugar; add egg yolks. Combine flour and salt
and sift 3 times. Combine sour cream and soda. Add flour and
sour cream alternately to creamed mixture. Fold in egg whites
and flavorings. Spoon batter into a 10-inch greased and
lightly floured tube or bundt pan. Bake at 300 degrees for 1
1/2 hours. Yield: one 10 inch cake.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
