  • 1 cup Sifted cake flour
  • 1 cup Sifted powdered sugar
  • ¼ tsp. Table salt


  • 1 ¾ cups Egg whites (12–13 eggs), room temperature
  • 1 tbsp. Fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. Cream of tartar
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla bean paste
  • 1 cup Granulated sugar


  • 2 cups Cold heavy cream
  • ¼ cup Powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla bean paste
  • 1 ½ lb. Fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced or quartered
  • 1 Recipe Strawberry Simple Syrup from Ruby-Berry Cocktail recipe


  • Preheat oven to 325° with rack in bottom third.

The Cake

  • Whisk together flour, powdered sugar, and salt in a bowl.
  • Beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium-low speed until frothy. Add lemon juice, cream of tartar, and vanilla; increase speed to medium, and continue beating until soft and billowy.
  • Gradually add granulated sugar, 2 Tbsp. at a time, while continually beating egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Sift flour mixture over meringue, in four increments, gently folding with a whisk after each addition, until incorporated.
  • Gently pour batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan with a removeable bottom. Cut a spatula through the batter to release any air pockets.
  • Bake cake until the top is golden, cracks are dry, and it pulls away from the sides, 55–60 minutes.
  • Invert cake onto the neck of a bottle; cool completely before removing from pan, about 2 hours.

The Whipped Cream

  • Whip cream, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  • Serve cake with strawberries, syrup, and whipped cream.
