Schaum Torte

  • 5 egg whites
  • 3/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. water
  • 1-1/2 tsp. vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Put ingredients - whites, baking powder, salt, vanilla, vinegar and water - into an electric mixer bowl and beat, using high speed. When egg whites are stiff, add 1-1/2 cups sugar one teaspoon at a time while mixing.

Spread on heavy brown paper using a teaspoon and bake 1 hour or longer in a 275°F oven. Remove from paper to cool as soon as you pull them from the oven.
