  • 9 large egg whites about 1 1/4 cups, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar divided
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • powdered sugar and fresh berries for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 350. Sift together 1/2 cup of sugar and the cake flour, and set aside.
  • In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla, and salt until soft peaks form. Add the remaining cup of sugar, a few tablespoons at a time, while beating on high speed, until stiff peaks form. Fold in the flour and sugar mixture gently, being careful not to deflate the egg whites.
  • Gently scoop the cake batter into an ungreased 10 inch tube pan. Run a knife through the batter to remove air bubbles. Bake 35-40 minutes, until golden brown on top. Turn the pan upside down to cool and allow to cool completely.
  • When ready to serve the cake, run a knife around the edges of the pan to release the cake. Dust with powdered sugar, and top with fresh berries.
