Mix together the yolks of eight eggs, one and three-quarters cups of sugar, rind and juice of one lemon. Roll a dozen soda crackers fine, grate two bars of sweet chocolate, two teaspoonfuls of cinnamon, one teaspoonful
of cloves, half a pound of stoned dates, cut fine. Fold in carefully the whites (beaten stiff) of the eight eggs last of all. Bake in loaves or in layers.
(Note: No butter or milk, and of course (!) best when eggs are 50 cents per dozen!)
