Ingredients

  • ¾ c. sifted cake flour

  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • c. egg whites (10 to 12 eggs)
  • 1 tsp. cream of tartar
  • c. sifted sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Orange/Cheese Frosting

Method

  • Sift flour and cocoa together 4 times.
  • Add salt to egg whites. Beat until frothy. Add cream of tartar. Beat until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold sugar into whites, ¼ c. at a time. Add vanilla. Fold in flour mixture, 2 tblsp. at a time.
  • Pour batter into ungreased 10" tube pan. Bake in moderate oven (375°) 1 hour.
