Cole McCleery


12 egg whites
1 cup flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract

In medium bowl, combine dry ingredients.
In separate bowl, combine egg whites, vanilla and almond extract.
Beat until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold dry ingredients into egg mixture, in increments of 4 cups.
Make sure the mixture is well blended but take care not to over blend; it will destroy the airiness of the cake.
Carefully pour mixture into a tube pan.
Cut through mixture with knife to remove any large air pockets.
Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes.
Turn cake upside down while still in pan and allow to cool completely
