It is simple and delicious

Today mom cooked a classic "Torta" for "Family Home Evening", a recipe that for a century puts smiles in faces of those that taste it, a cake that her mother did always for the children. It is simple & delicious! 

150g or 1 1/3 All purpose flour 300g or 1 1/3 Sugar 6 Eggs Tsp of baking powder
Preheat over to 350º F. Beat egg whites until stiff. Blend egg yolks with sugar and add to it the white eggs, flour and the baking powder. Mix all ingredients. Pour into a 9" x 13" greased cake pan. Bake for approximately 40 minutes until the wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Immediately loosen cake from edge of pan; invert on towel generously sprinkled with sugar. Spread on top strawberry jam or other jam of your choice. While still hot carefully role cake and towel from narrow end.
Let it cool from 15 minutes and remove the towel. Enjoy it and have you also a happy "Family Home Evening"
