Golden Glow Cake


1/2 cup butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
grated rind of 1/2 orange
1 egg, separated
1 egg yolk
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1-1/2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted


Cream the butter and add to it the sugar and grated rind. Add the beaten egg yolks. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk to the creamed mixture. Fold in the egg white, beaten until stiff.

Divide the batter in two, and to one part add the melted chocolate.

Put by tablespoonsful – alternating dark and light batter – into three greased and lightly floured 10-inch cake pans. Bake in a 375 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the cake springs back when lightly touched in the center.

Cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then turn out on racks.
