Step 1

Place egg whites in a large small bowl; let stand at room temperature 30 minutes.

Sift 1/2 cup sugar and flour together twice; set aside.

Place oven rack in the lowest position.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Add cream of tartar, extracts and salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form.

Gradually add remaining sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form.

Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time.

Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan.

Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets.

Bake 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry.

Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.

Run a knife around side and center tube of pan.

Remove cake to a serving plate.
