My daughter can't have gluten, and my husband is diabetic, so there are a lot of special recipes at our house. This cake is always on our family gathering table. —Anne Wiebe, Gladstone, Manitoba

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups egg whites (about 10)
  • 3/4 cup plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup white rice flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Assorted fresh fruit, optional

Nutritional Facts

1 slice (calculated without fruit) equals 101 calories, trace fat (0 saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 149 mg sodium, 23 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 3 g protein. Diabetic Exchange: 1-1/2 starch.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, flours and potato starch together twice; set aside.
  2. Add cream of tartar, salt and vanilla to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time.
  3. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.
  4. Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate. Top with fresh fruit if desired. Yield: 16 servings.
