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'.

How to Make SUNSHINE CAKE

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.
