1. Prepare 1 large baking pan 12″x18″ (I bought from Michael’s Craft Store)  each about $18.

2. Ingredients: 15 eggs
1 t. cream of tartar
1 t. salt
3 1/2 cups sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
3 t. baking powder
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk (or soy bean milk)
3 t. vanilla

3. Method: Prepare 2 bowls (A & B)
1) Preheat oven 325

2) Separate egg yolks and whites.

(A) bowl: Whisk 15 egg whites with 1 t. cream tartar in an electric mixer ( I usually use KitchenAid ) whisk until creammy and fluffy. Slowly add 2 cups sugar, mix till thick.

(3) Sift flour with 3 t. baking powder.

(4) (B) bowl: Add yolks, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1 t. salt and mix until color changes to white.

Add 1 cup milk,1 cup oil and 3 t. vanilla. Mix well and then add the sifted flour and baking powder

(3) stir well.  MIX BOWL A AND BOWL B

(5) Line the bottom of the pan with baking paper,  then pour the batter in cake pan, bake  for 46 minutes (open oven door each 15 minutes)(6) Use a toothpick to check for doneness, then take out of oven, let cool and turn them out on a wire rack to cool some more.

All the cakes are healthy and delicious!
