6 tbs. butter
pinch of baking soda
6 tbs. extra fine sugar
3 oz. potato starch
3 oz. white flour

How to make the Sandy Cake:

Whip the butter with the sugar until it reaches a creamy consistency. Add 3 egg yolks, one at a time, then sift in the flour, baking soda, potato starch and a pinch of salt. Beat the egg whites till stiff then add to the batter. Mix well and place in a 10-in. cake pan lined with buttered parchment paper, leveling the top. Bake at 350 F for about 30 mins.

If wrapped in aluminum foil, this cake keeps several days. It is best if eaten the day after baking.
