A pink lozenger cake was new to me but not, thankfully, to our readers. About two dozen readers came through with a cake recipe for Diane Roth of Herndon, Pa. The cake takes its name from round, pink lozengers, a candy with a wintergreen flavor. The candy is soaked overnight in milk and then added to a white cake batter.

This recipe is from Elaine Kolva of Elizabethville, Pa.

Wintergreen Cake

1/2 pound wintergreen candy, with round shape and pink color

1 1/2 cup milk

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup margarine or butter

3 cups flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon vanilla

4 egg whites

Dissolve wintergreen candy in milk overnight in refrigerator. Cream sugar and margarine in mixing bowl. Add flour, baking powder, vanilla and candy mixture. Mix well. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into batter last. Pour batter into a greased 9x13-inch pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until tests done. Frost as desired.
