Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 9-inch round cake pan; set aside.
  2. Beat 4 egg whites in bowl at high speed, scraping bowl often, until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  3. Beat 4 egg yolks, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon orange zest and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla with whisk until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually add butter alternately with flour, mixing well after each addition. Gently stir in egg whites.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 25-30 minutes or until cake begins to pull away from sides of pan. Let stand 15 minutes; remove from pan. Cool completely.
