ChefAl has responded to Susan's request for a cake her mother used to make. This is not baked in a tube; it calls for three 8" layers. A great icing to use would be White Mountain. But be forewarned; this cake is not for those on low-fat or low-cholesterol diets!
Preheat oven to 375░ F.
4 1/2 cups cake flour
Alternately add the flour mixture and the rest of the pineapple juice, mixing just until combined.
Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Add remaining sugar and beat until it just disappears. Gently fold in the batter just until well mixed.
Bake in three 8 inch layers for 25 to 30 minutes.
