A recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen
Preheat oven to 375°F.
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
9 egg whites
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 cup plus 1 Tbsp sifted flour
4 egg yolks
2 tsp grated orange rind
In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle salt &
vanilla over egg whites. Beat until whites hold a soft peak, &
slowly add 1 cup of sugar, beating just until sugar is blended into
whites. Add flour in four parts, folding in each time
gently with a rubber spatula,
until all the flour is incorporated.
In another bowl, beat egg yolks & orange
rind until thick, slowly adding the remaining 4 Tbsp of sugar. Beat until
thick and yellow.
Fold 1/3 of the egg white mixture into
yolk mixture; fold gently until blended. Fill an ungreased 10" tube
pan, using large spoonfuls & alternating yellow batter with white until all is used.
Bake about 35 minutes, or until a broomstraw (or
toothpick) comes out dry when inserted into the cake. When cooled, frost with a fluffy icing
such as White Mountain to which 2 tsp. grated orange rind plus 1/2 to 1 tsp. orange
extract have been added (taste to determine how much is needed).
