    1                    Egg White

   INSTRUCTIONS for cake:
   Cream butter until smooth.  Gradually add sugar and beat
   until light  and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after
   each  addition.  Sift flour, baking powder and salt together.  Add
   to  creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending
   with flour.  Stir in vanilla.  Put batter into two greased 8-inch
   layer pans lined with paper (or spray pans with Baker’s Joy).
   Bake at 375F for 20-25 minutes.  Frost with Seven-Minute Frosting.
   Seven-Minute Frosting:
   Heat water to boiling in the lower part of double boiler.
   Water in lower part should surround upper part.  Place water, egg
   white, syrup, sugar and salt in upper part of double boiler.  Beat the
   mixture with a rotary egg beater or electric beater, rapidly at first,
   then steadily and continuously for about 7 minutes.  Keep water
   boiling in lower part of double boiler during the beating.  Remove from
   heat, pour out hot water and fill with cold water, and replace
   upper part of double boiler.  Allow mixture to stand for 5 minutes.  Add
   vanilla and stir.
   Frosting Variations:
   Brown Sugar Frosting:  Substitute 1 cup firmly packed brown
   sugar for white sugar;  use 2 tablespoons water in place of 3
   tablespoons.  Omit corn syrup.
   Fruit and Nut Frosting:  Add 1/2 cup nuts, figs, dates or
   seedless raisins, or a combination of these when adding vanilla.
   Coconut Frosting:  Coconut may be mixed with frosting or
   sprinkled on  the top.
