(Old-fashioned Polish Recipe)
2 cups Buckwheat Flour
2 cups Sour Cream
4.5 cups Sugar
Preheat oven to 350 deg F.
Separate the egg yolks and whites. Beat egg yolks with sugar and lemon zest over steam
until the mixture is very smooth and almost white in color. Stir in the sour cream. Add
the flour little by little continuously mixing the batter. Beat the egg whites until stiff
peaks form, then gently mix into the batter. Pour into a buttered baking dish and bake
for 60 minutes.
Note: Old-fashioned recipes do not provide information regarding baking temperatures
as there were no ovens with gauges. The temperature noted above is our
recommendation. There were also no baking powders available, and so there is no
baking powder in the original recipe. We recommend modifying this original recipe by
adding 1-2 tspns of baking powder.
