Ingredients

1 cup cake flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 3/4 cup egg whites, about 13 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup granulated sugar

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

1. In a bowl, sift the flour and 3/4 cup of sugar together. Set aside.

2. Beat the egg whites in a large bowl until foamy. Add the salt, cream of tartar, vanilla and almond and continue beating, gradually adding the last 1 cup of sugar, until soft peaks form.


3. Gently fold in about one-fourth of the flour mixture. Repeat with the remaining mixture until all the flour is mixed in. Do not stir more than necessary.

4. Scrape the batter into an ungreased tube pan. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until done. When done, the cake will spring back to the touch. Immediately invert the tube pan over the neck of a bottle and let cool in the inverted position.
