Hazelnut Torte

Since I was in junior high I've cooked and baked from The All New Fannie Farmer Boston Cooking School Cookbook.  Mine has no cover and is frayed like the end of a shoelace.  Half of the index is gone.  And I only recently found a replacement through  So happy.....

Recipe From Fannie Farmer's Cookbook:

   4 eggs
Beat the whites until stiff.  Beat in
   1/4 cup sugar
Without washing the beater, beat the yolks until thick and lemon-colored.  Beat in
   1/4 cup sugar
Stir in
   2/3 cup ground roasted hazelnuts
   2 tablespoons rum
   1 3/4 cups mashed potatoes, packed lightly
   1 tablespoon vanilla
Fold in the beaten whites.  Bake in an 8-inch spring-form pan.  This moist mixture may take as long as 1 1/2 hours.  Serves 8
