From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Before the 1850's quick breads had to be made with eggs and cream to beat air into the dough as baking powder as such was not yet "discovered". This is a quick bread that George Washington liked. Makes 12.
butter or oil for greasing the pan
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter or oil a muffin pan thoroughly. In bowl whisk the flour and salt. Separate the eggs. In batter bowl beat the whites until stiff peaks form and set aside. In another batter bowl beat the yolks until thick and creamy. In another bowl whip the cream. Using a spoon or spatula, carefully fold the flour and whipped cream into the egg yolks. (Do not use the beater!) Gently fold in the beaten egg whites. Spoon into prepared muffin cups and bake 20 - 25 minutes.
