SUNSHINE CAKE

This is an excellent tasting cake that I have made many times. It taste best with just a simple powdered sugar glaze drizzled over it!

This is a very OLD recipe (1926)from The Wisconsin State Fair 'Blue Ribbon Cookbook'.

Ingredients

1 1/4 c
cake flour
1 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
baking powder
9
egg whites
1 1/4 tsp
cream of tartar
1/2 c
sugar
5
egg yolks
1/4 c
cold water
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp
almond extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl sift together flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
2
In a large bowl beat egg whites and cream of tartar until medium stiff. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
3
In a small bowl beat egg yolks, water and extracts for 1 minute. Add to sifted dry ingredients and beat 1 more minute on medium speed.
4
Gently fold egg/flour mixture into beaten egg whites 1/4 at a time.
5
Pour into a tube pan and bake 45-50 in a 350 degree oven. When cake springs back to a light touch of the finger it is done.
6
Invert pan to cool. Let stand overnight before removing from pan.
7
Frost with a buttercream frosting or I like a powdered sugar glaze drizzled over cake.
