Lemon Pound Cake

When I clarified some stock to make consommé, I used 12 egg whites. Had to figure out how to use the 12 egg yolks. So, made this

1 2/3 cup flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup egg yolks (this should be 12)
1 egg
1 ½ cups sugar
1 Tablespoon orange zest
1 Tablespoon orange juice, strained
½ teaspoon lemon extract
¾ cup boiling water

Preheat oven to 325.

Grease tube pan with butter.

  1. Sift twice the flour, baking powder and salt and pour back into sifter.
  2. Beat egg yolks and egg for about 5 minutes. Gradually add sugar and beat another 5 minutes.
  3. Folk in orange zest, juice and lemon extract. Sift dry ingredients and fold. Add boiling water and fold quickly.
  4. Scrape into tube pan.
  5. Bake 60 to 65 minutes.
