Put this cake in the oven and literally forget about it overnight!


  • 6 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar 2 ml
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar 375 ml
  • 1/4 tsp salt 1 ml
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 5 ml
  • Ice Cream (optional)
  • Berries of your choice (optional)
  • Whipped Cream (optional)


Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat until stiff.

Add the sugar one tablespoon at a time as you continue beating the egg whites.

Beat in the salt and the vanilla. Spoon the mixture into a buttered 6 x 8 inch pan and place in a preheated 450F (230C) oven, immediately turning off the heat.

Tip: Make shallow indentations in the meringue to hold the topping when you serve it.

Leave the cake in the oven overnight or until the oven has completely cooled.

Serve with ice cream, berries and/or whipped cream.

Serving Size: Serves 4 to 6.
