Heavenly White Cake

This is an old recipe I have for a white cake, and it taste very good.

Heavenly White Cake

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups sifted cake flour 4 teaspoons baking powder 3/4 teaspoon salt 4 egg whites 1 1/2 cups white sugar 3/4 cup butter 1 cup milk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

1 Measure sifted flour, baking powder, and salt; sift together three times.

2 In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add 1/2 cup sugar gradually, and continue beating only until meringue will hold up in soft peaks.

3 Cream butter or margarine. Gradually add remaining 1 cup sugar, and cream together until light and fluffy. Add sifted ingredients alternately with milk a small amount at a time, beating after each addition until smooth. Mix in flavorings. Add meringue, and beat thoroughly into batter. Spread batter in a 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan which has been lined on the bottom with parchment paper.

4 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool cake in pan 10 minutes, then remove from pan and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. This cake may also be baked in two 9 inch round pans for 30 to 35 minutes, or in three 8 inch round pans for 25 to 30 minutes.

This cake was great. It was light and fluffy. I now have a white cake recipe that I will use all the time. Thanks for the great recipe.
tHIS MIGHT BE A STUPID QUESTION BUT IS THIS A PURE WHITE CAKE? i'M LOOKING FOR SOMETHING i CAN COLOR.
This is a great recipe and it yields perfect results each and every time I make it. It has a great crumb and awesome flavor but it takes other flavors too (I've tried lemon and strawberry in place of the almond). It does take gel color nicely as well. I use a 9x13 inch pan and bake for an additional 8-13 minutes. Definitely a great cake and I appreciate your recipe!
