Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Sift 1/2 cup sugar and flour together twice; set aside.

"Made this cake today and it is very good. Only problem I had was it seemed to get done in about 25 minutes instead of the 35-40 but maybe it is my oven?"
