This is another of those recipes that I am posting for someone else, but want to try. I think that I would frost this cake with a cream cheese frosting.

I haven't cut into it yet but it didn't seem to rise well and it may be that I followed the instructions regarding beating the egg whites with cream of tartar while the rest of the batter sat there. Maybe I should have had it prepared and folded it in. By the time it was stiff the other batter looked deflated. Was there something I could have done differently. Disappointed. It was for a birthday.
