Schmoo Torte

6 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
6 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup chopped pecans (by hand)
500 ml whipping cream
icing sugar
250 ml whipping cream
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar

Oil bottom of 10 inch tube pan, set aside. Preheat oven to 325
degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius). In a large bowl, beat
egg whites until almost stiff. Add cream of tartar and very gradually
add the 1/2 cup sugar. In another bowl, beat yolks until light.
Add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and the vanilla. Fold yolk mixture
into whites. Fold in flour and baking powder. Gently fold in pecans
by hand. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 1 hour. Remove
from oven and invert to cool. Remove from pan and slice into three
layers. Filling: Whip 500 ml whipping cream, and sweeten lightly
with icing sugar. Use to fill between layers and cover sides of
torte. Decorate with rosettes of whipping cream.

Bring 250 ml whipping cream, butter and brown sugar to a boil in
a saucepan. Remove from heat and cool. Just before serving, drizzle
some of the sauce over the torte and put remaining sauce in a bowl
on the side.

Reviewer: geri from collingwood, canada
the onion is definitely a mistake. using an angle food cake mix and folding in the pecans is much easier and just as good.
