From the recipe of Ruth Mitchell (in her own words) 

Put 2/3 cup sugar in a pan and heat to liquid.  Add 1/2 cup boiling water and bring back to a boil, stirring  (be careful that stuff sure splatters and am mighty hot).

Add 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon soda, sifted well

Beat 3 egg whites and fold in. 

Bake in layers or loaf at 350 degrees. 

Lots of peoepl have tried to duplicate this cake, and very few of them succeeded.  Mom said usin an iron skillet for the burnt suger made all the difference.... Lenora Clark

NOTE TO EDITOR:  I copies this from her hand writing.  I think the captial T on the burnt sugar quantity means Tablespoon, but Im' not positive.  LC

Preheat oven to BROIL. Place chicken parts in baking pan. 

Sprinkle with 1 envelop Lipton Onion soup Mix ( or substitue beef bouliion, poultry seasoning & minced onions).

Place under broiler just until soup mix blackens.

Remove, turn oven to BAKE 350 degrees. 

Drizzle chicken with one-half to two-thirds cup sherry ( the alcohol will cook off). 

Cover pan with foil.  Put in oven for about 55 minutes.

Save the makes wonderful gravey; just trim the fat before reiferating. 
NOTE: The Chicken will be very light near the bone, but it IS done.  I prefer serving it with noodles or fried rice.
