Directions:
Heat oven to 375.

Stir together flour and first amount of sugar; set aside.

In large mixer bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until foamy.
Add second amount of sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high speed until meringue holds stiff peaks.
Gently fold in flavorings.
Sprinkle flour-sugar mixture, cup at a time over meringue, folding in gently just until flour-sugar mixture disappears.
Push batter into ungreased tub pan, 10"x 4".
Gently cut through batter.

Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until top springs back when touched lightly with finger. Invert tube pan on funnel; let hang until cake is completely cool. (I do not have a big enough funnel, so I use a wine bottle.)
