4 eggs, separated
3/4 cup AP or cake flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 375°
Add sugar to the yolks and beet until smooth and lighter in color
Sift flour and cornstarch together, and add to the sugar-yolk mixture
Beat eggs whites until stiff peaks
Gently fold everything together, including vanilla and a pinch of salt
Pour into a greased loaf pan
Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is very light brown
Let cool in the pan
