Dry Ingredients:

  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups SUPER fine sugar you can buy this or make it
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 5 egg whites room temperature
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoons almond extract


  • Heat oven to 350°F. Prepare two 8-inch round cake pans or a 9x13 pan.
  • In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer (or stand mixer) cream butter until lighter in color and creamier. (1-2 minutes.)
  • Add in egg whites and mix on low until incorporated.
  • Add in milk, vanilla, and almond extract. Mix until just combined.
  • Add in all dry ingredients and stir by hand until incorporated.
  • Pour batter into prepared pans and bake for 18-22 minutes for round pans. If using the 9x13 pan start checking at 22 minutes. Even oven is different! When an inserted toothpick is removed with a few crumbs but no wet batter, the cake is done.
