  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Gently fold egg yolk mixture with the egg whites. Gently combine well.
  • Pour into an ungreased 10 inch tube pan and bake for 1 hour or until tests done. When done immediately invert pan on top of a soda bottle. Cool at least 3 hours before removing so that it will not fall. When cool, loosen edges and remove cake from pan.
