Total Time:
1 hrs 10 mins
1 10-inch tube pan


  • 1 cup cake flour

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar, divided

  • 12 egg whites

  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 ½ teaspoons cream of tartar

  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Clean and fully dry a 10-inch tube pan.

  2. Sift together flour, and 3/4 cup sugar, set aside.

  3. Whip egg whites, along with vanilla, cream of tartar, and salt, in a large bowl to medium stiff peaks. Gradually add remaining 3/4 cup sugar while continuing to whip to stiff peaks. When the egg white mixture has reached its maximum volume, fold in the sifted ingredients gradually, 1/3 at a time. Do not overmix. Put the batter into the tube pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cake springs back when touched, 40 to 45 minutes.

  5. Balance the tube pan upside down on the top of a bottle to prevent decompression while cooling. When cool, run a knife around the edge of the pan and invert onto a plate.


Be sure that your 10-inch tube pan is clean and dry. Any amount of oil or residue could deflate the egg whites.
