  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • In large mixing bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar at high speed until foamy.
  • Add granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating constantly until sugar is dissolved and whites are glossy and stand in soft peaks. (Rub just a bit of meringue between thumb and forefinger to feel if sugar is dissolved.)
  • Beat in vanilla.

  • Sift about 1/2 cup of the flour mixture over egg whites and gently fold just until flour disappears.

  • Invert cake in pan on funnel or bottle neck.
  • Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours.
  • With narrow spatula or knife, loosen cake from pan. Gently shake onto serving plate.
  • Top with fruit or frost.
