Directions:
Place oven rack at lowest position. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

In small bowl, combine flour and 3/4 cup sugar. Set aside.

In large bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar, salt, vanilla, and almond extract until mixture forms soft peaks. Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating on highest speed until stiff peaks form.

Spoon flour-sugar mixture 1/4 cup at a time over beaten egg whites; fold in gently just until blended.

Pour batter into ungreased 10-inch tube pan. With knife, cut gently through batter to remove large air bubbles.

Bake at 375 degrees on lowest rack for 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cracks are very dry.

Immediately invert cake. Let hang until completely cool. Remove cooled cake from pan.
