4. Fold egg whites into flour mixture in 2 batches using balloon whisk.

5. Carefully pour mixture into 21 cm ungreased tube pan; pull skewer through mixture to disperse bubbles. Bake in moderately hot oven (we did 350 F) about 45 minutes or until cake feels springy to touch ( we did it for one hour). Gently invert pan on bench.
