  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 3 cups sifted cake flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 egg whites


  • 1   Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two 8-inch round cake pans.
  • 2   Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift flour with baking powder and salt, and add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Beat well. Stir in vanilla.
  • 3   In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain. Divide batter into prepared pans.
