Ingredients

    - 12 egg whites.
    - 1.5 teaspoons cream of tartar.
    - 1.5 cups sugar, divided.
    - 1.5 teaspoons vanilla.
    - 0.5 teaspoons almond extract.
    - 1 cup sifted cake flour.
    - 0.25 teaspoons salt.
    - Fruit or frosting or whipping cream - optional (not included in calculations!).

Directions

- In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar at high speed until foamy. Add 3/4 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating constantly until sugar is dissolved and egg whites are glossy and stand in soft peaks.

- Beat in flavorings (vanilla and almond extracts).

- Sift together flour, remaining sugar, and salt. Sift about 1/2 cup of flour mixture over the egg whites and gently fold just until the flour disappears. Repeat folding in remaining flour mixture 1/2 cup at a time. Pour into ungreased 10x10 inch tube cake pan.

- Bake in preheated 375 degree oven until the top springs back (when lightly touched with finger) - should be about 30-40 minutes. Invert cake in pan on funnel or bottleneck (to cool - so it doesn't deflate!). Cool completely - at least 1.5 hours. With narrow spatula or knife, loosen cake from pan and gently shake onto serving plate.

- Top with fruit or frost if desired!

It can be quite tedious, but after making it once or twice, you learn the tricks you need!

This recipe ends up making 12 good slices (depending on how large you want them, of course!). It's hard to resist making a larger slice once you eat it once, however!
