[Familycooking] Ingredients 1 cup cake flour 1 1/2 cups superfine granulated sugar 1 1/4 cups egg whites (about 10 large eggs whites), at room temperature 1 1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon maple extract
Cooking Instructions 1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. 2. Add 1/2 cup of the sugar to the flour and sift twice. 3. With an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form when the mixer is removed from the batter. 4. Add half of the remaining sugar and beat for 1 minute. Add the remaining sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating after each addition. 5. Stir in the vanilla and maple extract. 6. Fold the flour and sugar mixture into the egg whites, 1/4 cup at a time, just until incorporated. 7. Put the batter in an ungreased 10" tube pan and bake until the cake is light golden brown and springy to the touch, about 1 hour. Invert the pan and let the cake cool completely before removing from the pan.
