  • Ready In

  1. Measure sifted cake flour, baking powder, and salt; sift together three times.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add 1/2 cup sugar gradually, and continue beating only until meringue will hold up in soft peaks.
  3. Beat butter until smooth. Gradually add remaining 1 cup sugar, and cream together until light and fluffy. Add sifted ingredients alternately with milk a small amount at a time, beating after each addition until smooth. Mix in flavorings. Add meringue, and mix thoroughly into batter. Spread batter in a 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan which has been lined on the bottom with parchment paper.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool cake in pan 10 minutes, then remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. This cake may also be baked in two 9 inch round pans for 30 to 35 minutes, or in three 8 inch round pans for 25 to 30 minutes.

I was very disappointed by this recipe. It tasted very flat. Even adding an extra 1/2 cup of milk it was still too heavy.

I have made this recipe several times, and find it necessary to add a little more milk than the 1 cup listed--the batter becomes very heavy without approx 1/2 cup extra milk to smooth it out. Th...

Made some minor changes here - folded the beaten whites in rather than beating them in (holdover from culinary school - always fold in something you've whipped), omitted the almond extract, and ...
