This recipe was very tasty but really needed more elaboration as to what to do with the egg whites. How far do I whisk them? Soft peaks? Stiff peaks? At what point do I add the sugar? Would confectioner's sugar work better? I had to take some guesses, but -in the end- I came up with a really nice, light cake that my friends and I enjoyed. The recipe just needs some more elaboration is all.
