1 1/4 cup / 300 ml
3/4 tsp / 4 ml
1 tbsp / 15 ml
baking powder
3 cup / 750 ml
cake and pastry flour
1 tbsp / 15 ml
vanilla extract
1 cup / 250 cup
softened unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup / 375 ml
granulated sugar, divided
3/4 cup / 175 ml
Naturegg Simply Egg Whites, well shaken


  1. Grease and line a 9 x 13-inch (3 L) baking pan with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  2. Whip egg whites just until soft peaks form; beating constantly, gradually beat in 1 cup (250 ml) granulated sugar just until stiff. Set aside.

  3. Beat butter with remaining sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Sift flour with baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture, alternating with milk in 3 additions. Fold in whipped egg whites until uniformly combined. Spread evenly in prepared pan.

  4. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a tester comes out clean and cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool completely in pan.


  1. For a berry-licious topping: Sweeten mixed fresh berries with sugar, honey or maple syrup to taste. Spoon fruit and any accumulated juices over the cake slices just before serving.

  2. Cake will hold for 2 days at room temperature. Wrap well and freeze for longer storage.

  3. Vary the flavour by adding other accents such as almond extract or finely grated orange or lemon zest.
