 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      Large         Eggs
      2/3  Cup           Sugar
      2/3  Cup           Flour
      1/2  Teaspoon      Salt
    1      Teaspoon      Vanilla
      1/4  Cup           Clarified Butter  -- Melted And Cooled
                          -- to lukewarm
 In a metal bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar.  Set bowl on a pan of 
 simmering water, and whisk mixture until it is warm and the sugar is 
 dissolved.  Remove bowl from pan and, with an electric mixer, beat at 
 moderate speed for 10-15 minutes or until it is triple in volume and 
 cooled to room temperature.
  Meanwhile, sift flour with salt onto a sheet of wax paper.  In a bowl, 
 combine the vanilla and butter.  Sift and fold flour mixture into the egg 
 mixture in batches until the mixture is just combined. Stir a fourth of 
 the mixture into the butter, and fold the butter mixture back into the 
  Line bottom of a buttered 8-1/2-inch springform pan with wax paper, 
 butter the paper and dust with flour, shaking out the excess.  Pour batter
 into the pan, smoothing the top.
  Bake in the middle of a preheated 350f oven for 30-35 minutes or until a 
 tester comes out clean.  Let the cake cool in the pan on a rack for 5 
 minutes, then remove side of pan, and invert onto the rack.  Remove paper 
 carefully and let cake cool completely.
