This recipe is very old and is a take on a pound cake, except the crumb is very fine - almost "sand-like." It has a lovely flavor and tastes great if served with a fruit sauce, such as strawberry. Please note that this recipe is being translated as it originally was written; there will be an ingredient listed that is no longer made but please read the note as to the proper substitution.



  1. Cream the butter and add the yolks, whole eggs, sugar and vanilla. Blend thoroughly.
  2. Add the flour and make sure everything is mixed completely.
  3. Pour into a greased springform pan and bake at 350°F for 1 hour.


  1. Note: Potatine flour is no longer made. Substitute with 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour and 2 cups cornstarch. This is as close as you will get to the consistency of the original Potatine flour.
