Sunshine Cake for my Birthday

My mother used to make Sunshine Cake for my birthday every year, per my request!
It is an Angel Food Cake and very nice as a light dessert. It would be very good served with fruit and ice cream!


4 Egg Yolks
3 Tablespoons Cold Water
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
1 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 Cup Hot Water
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar

Add sugar to the 4 egg yolks in a mixer and beat for 7 minutes.

Sift the flour and baking powder together. Then add the flour mixture to the bowl alternately with the hot water. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, beat the 4 egg whites and the cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.

Fold in the egg white mixture to the flour/egg yolk mixture.

Bake at 325 degrees for 60 - 75 minutes. Invert cake pan while it cools. Top with powdered sugar.
