Fold at first 1/3 of the beaten egg whites in the mixture of the yellow of the eggs and mix it accurately. Then add the rest of the beaten egg whites on top and cover it with the almond-mixture. Now fold it carefully with a wooden spoon in.

Devide the dough in equal Shares to the jars. Put the jars on the oven-grill and bake them 50 minutes. Proof the cakes with a wooden stick, if they are well done. If they are, take them off the oven and let them cool down. Afterwards cover the cakes with icing sugar.
