An easy American family recipe passed down to me from my Grandmother - who was and still is an absolute angel in my eyes. The yellow colouring comes from the egg yolks, and the way they are separated out through the cooking process.


Serves: 12 

  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 (300g) white sugar
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) water
  • 1 cup (125g) plain flour

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour30min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Whip the egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar and continue beating until stiff. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks until lemon coloured.
  2. Boil the sugar and water until it reaches the thread stage; 110 - 112 degrees C. Beat syrup into egg whites. Fold in egg yolks. Fold in flour.
  3. Pour batter into an ungreased ring tin. Bake for 1 hour. Cool.
