Zosha's notes[]

Skip the "lining", just butter and flour. Generally a cake tin would mean an 8" round cake pan. You could make it in a loaf pan as well. The meringue is obviously part of the cake, but it doesn't say what you are supposed to do with it. I suspect that it is one of those things you are supposed to know. So here is my guess. Spread the meringue after the cake has cooked and cooled and bake a little while longer.
