White Mountain Cake



I forgot where I got my tube pan from. But it's been dusted in the pantry for ages. One of the reason that I rarely use it is it makes a huge cake that both me and husband can never finish within a week.

But the pan does make a cute shape of a cake that I really want to bake something with it. Maybe baby Ethan can help a bit to finish the end product.

(makes 10" cake)
Ingredients:

1 cup unsalted butter, soften
2 cups sugar
3 cups sifted cake flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 tbsp lemon zest
8 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F.

Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl.

In another bowl, sift flour with baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to the creamed mixture alternately with milk and lemon zest. Fold in egg white.

Turn batter into a greased tube pan. Bake for 55 to 65 mins, or until cake springs back when touched lightly with finger.

Looking good and delicious! I like that the ingredients here are fairly simple. I'm going to have to try this. I still have your zebra cake (I think that's the name) recipe, which I want to try.
