This fine-textured vanilla-flavored cake is a sentimental favorite among our American-style cakes. It’s excellent with fresh fruit or ice cream.
This is the foundation for Duchess Cake.
Place fresh, cold egg whites in the bowl of a heavy-duty mixer. Set aside until 60 degrees, slightly below room temperature.
Pour flour, ½ cup sugar and salt in that order into a triple sifter. Sift onto a sheet of waxed paper; set aside.
