Directions:
Sift together flour and powdered sugar. Repeat sifting and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar, vanilla and salt. Beat until soft peaks form (tips curl over). Gradually add 1 cup of sugar--2 Tbsp at a time. Beat until stiff peaks form (tips stand up straight). Make sure you don't underbeat.

Sift about 1/4 of the flour over the whites. Fold in gently. Repeat by 1/4's until the flour is gone.

Turn into ungreased 10" tube pan. Beat at 325 for about 50 minutes or until cake tests done and pulls away from sides of the pan. Invert in cake pan until cool. Use a spatula to loosen from the pan. Remove and enjoy!
