Preparation
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees (200 C.).

  • In mixing bowl, beat egg whites and salt on high speed until foamy.
  • Add cream of tartar, 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla, and almond flavoring; beat until soft peaks form.
  • Peaks should be soft enough so they bend over slightly at the tips.

  • Sift about 1/4 of the flour mixture over the egg whites, and using flat spatula, quickly but gently fold into egg whites.
  • Repeat using 1/4 of the flour mixture each time.
  • Pour batter into clean tube pan.
  • Gently cut through batter with knife to remove air pockets.
  • Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes, until an inserted wooden pick comes out clean.
  • Invert pan onto a wire rack to cool for 1 hour.
  • Beat 2 cups (475 ml) confectioners' sugar, butter, cream, and 1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla together until smooth.
