Love simple - I prefer dry simple cakes over the buttercreams and saucy cakes any time. I wonder if it's possible to get enough air into the egg whites in the carton. Then again, maybe I have no clue what I'm talking about.

That's a good question Giz, I'm gonna have to find out about that, it would save having all those egg yolks wouldn't it.

My old foe, the angel food cake! Thanks for posting this - I've tried to make angel food cake only to meet with disaster (and hysterical laughter from a pastry chef.) I'll try your way next time!
