    for White Cake
    2 1/8 cup flour
    1 1/2 cup sugar
    3 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup shortening
    1 cup milk (I used skim milk)
    1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    4 egg whites

    for Fluffy White Frosting
    1 cup sugar
    1/3 cup water
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tar-tar
    2 egg whites


I like to sprinkle flaked coconut on after frosting this cake. But not this one, Mom's doesn't like coconut.


Grease generously and flour a 9" x 9" cake pan, set aside. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift together flour, sugar baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add shortening, pour in milk and vanilla, beat for 2 minutes. Add egg whites and beat an additional 2 minutes.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 35-45 minutes until cake tests done. Cool.

While the cake is cooling, make the frosting.
Combine 1 cup of sugar, 1/3 cup water, and 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar, into a saaucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring till sugar desolves. Very slowly add sugar syrup to 2 unbeaten egg whites in a micing bowl, beating constantly with an electric mixer till stiff peaks form, about 7 minutes. Beat in 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Frost cooled cake.
