5 Egg yolks, at room temp
1 c Firmly packed Light brown
1 ts Vanilla, (optional)
6 Egg whites, at room
1/4 ts Salt
8 oz Pecan halves*
1/4 ts Cinnamon
1/4 c Brown sugar, firmly packed
1 ts Potato starch
1 1/2 ts Instant coffee powder
1 tb Hot water
1/4 c Sugar
12 Pecan halves

* lightly toasted and finely grated. Cake:Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Grease 9X9 inch baking pan. Line bottom of the pan with parchment and
grease the paper.

Using electric mixer beat yolks; sugar and vanilla until slowly dissolving
ribbon forms when beaters are lifted. Using clean dry beaters now beat the
egg whites with salt in a large bowl until stiff but not dry. Gently fold
in pecans, cinnamon and 1/3 of the whites into the yolk mixture. Fold the
resultant egg yolk mixture back into the remaining egg whites and turn the
batter into prepared pan, spread evenly.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is brown and the tester comes
out clean. Turn off oven. Run knife around the edge of the cake to loosen.
Let stand in turned off oven for 15 min. leaving the over door ajar. Remove
from oven and cool completely in the pan on a rack.

Glaze:Mix sugar and starch in a heavy small sauce pan. Dissolve coffee
mixture in the hot water. Stir coffee into the sugar mixture and simmer
over medium low heat until thickened stirring constantly (2 min.) Remove
from heat stir briskly to dissipate foam. Assembly: Invert cake on rack,
discarding the parchment. Reinvert onto a platter. Drizzle hot glaze over
the top spreading evenly. Let stand until glaze is firm. Cut into twelve
and top each piece with a glazed pecan.

GLAZED PECANS: Oil a baking sheet. Heat sugar in heavy skillet over low
heat stirring frequently until sugar dissolves. Then increase heat to
medium-low and cook the syrup until it is a golden brown. Stir in the
Pecans. Transfer the coated pecans to the baking sheet. Using a fork
separate nuts and arrange with rounded side up. Cool completely There you
are I promise to post them NOT adding my long boring dissertations about
Hawaii, religions and ethnic groups throughout the central and south
Pacific. Or at least I will try not to! At times I get carried away.
