2 cups cake flour
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 tbl. baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 cup oil
3/4 cup cold water
2 t vanilla or flavoring of your choice
7 egg yolks hand beaten
7 egg whites
1/2 t cream of tartar
In a large bowl mix the first 4 ingredients. Make a well and add the next 4 ingredients. Beat until smooth with a spoon and set aside. Beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Pour over egg yolk batter and fold in until well blended. Bake in a ungreased 10x4 pan 45-60 minutes or 3 8 or 9 inch cake pans about 20 minutes, keep a eye on it, at 350 preheated oven.
This cake is good frosted with Cool Whip/Instant Pudding Frosting.
2 small boxes instant pudding mix, flavor your choice
2 cups of cold milk
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Fold in 2 defrosted 8 oz. container of cool whip.
