  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup milk
  • ⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar

  4. In the bowl of your electric mixer beat the butter until soft the add ¾ cup of the sugar and beat until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes).
  5. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in the vanilla extract and alternately add the flour mixture and the milk, beginning and ending with the flour.
  6. In a clean bowl of your electric mixer  beat the egg whites with the whisk attachment until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and continue beating until soft peaks form. Add the remaining ¼ cup  of sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. With a rubber spatula gently fold a little of the whites into the batter to lighten it, and then add the remaining whites until combined. Do not over mix the batter.
