TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups egg whites (about 10)
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 to 2 drops red food coloring, optional
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped mixed candied fruit

Directions

  • 1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes; set aside.
  • 2. Add cream of tartar, extracts, salt and food coloring if desired to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time. Fold in candied fruit.
  • 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 375° for 35-40 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. Yield: 12 servings.
