RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

DESSERT

Sunshine Cake, American

1946 Sunshine Cake

Ingredients
  • 1 cup sifted cake flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 5 egg yolks, beaten
  • 7 egg whites, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon any desired flavoring
Preparation Instructions

Sift the flour once, measure and resift twice with the salt. Beat the egg yolks until thick and lemon colored. Beat the egg whites until foamy, add the cream of tartar and beat until stiff, but not dry. Add the sugar gradually and beat until the mixture holds in soft peaks. Fold in the beaten egg yolks and flavoring. Fold in the flour gently but thoroughly to avoid breaking air cells in the egg mixture. Pour batter into an ungreased ten-inch tube pan and bake in a moderate oven, 350 degrees, for about 50 minutes, or until done. Remove from oven and invert for one hour, or until cool. When cool, frost with a thin coating of confectioners' sugar, or sprinkle with sifted confectioners sugar.
