DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350, and line 2 nine inch pans with wax paper.
  • Sift flour with baking powder; in a separate bowl, combine the water and the vanilla.
  • Beat egg yolks until thick, then slowly add the sugar bit by bit, until the mixture gets thick and cream colored.
  • Add the flour alternately with the water, beginning and ending with the flour.
  • With clean mixer, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar untilsoft peaks form.
  • Fold egg whites into batter lightly, about 1/4 at a time.
  • Spoon into the pans and bake about 25 minutes, or until gold and springy.
  • I have added 3/4 cup nuts, 1/4 cup cocoa (sifted with the flour), 1 tbsp instant coffee, etc--it's a nice recipe to experiment with.
  • You can also make these into cupcakes--fill cupcake papers 3/4 full, bake about 12 minutes, makes about 24.
