How to make it

  • Set rack at the middle level in the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
  • Butter the bottom of two 9-inch round or one 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan. Line bottom with parchment or waxed paper.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar for about 5 minutes, until light and fluffy. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Combine egg whites, milk and vanilla extract. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the butter mixture then add half the milk mixture. Continue to alternate beginning and ending with flour mixture. Scrape the bowl and beater often.
  • Pour the batter into prepared pan(s) and smooth top with metal spatula. Bake cake(s) about 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center emerges clean.
  • Cool in pan on rack for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a rack, remove paper and let cool completely.
  • Note: For a classic yellow cake- Substitute 3 large eggs and 1 yolk for the egg whites.
