In a medium bowl, sift together the cake flour and 3/4 cup (150 grams) of the sugar. Set aside.
In a clean metal bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the room temperature egg whites on medium-low until just beginning to froth. Add the cream of tartar and salt and beat on medium speed until soft cloud-like mounds appear.
Sprinkle about 1/4 cup of the flour sugar mixture over the egg white mixture. Gently fold in with a large rubber spatula. Repeat until all of the flour mixture has been gently stirred in.
Bake until the cake is golden brown and the top springs back when firmly pressed, about 45 minutes.
If your tube pan has prongs around the rim for lifting, invert the pan onto them. Let the cake cool completely upside down, at least 2 hours. Don’t worry – it won’t fall out of the pan!
*For best results, use a very clean metal mixing bowl (not glass). Weigh the egg whites to get the correct amount, especially if using pasture-raised or locally grown eggs. Don’t use carton liquid egg whites. Make sure they’re completely warmed to room temperature. Only use an unlined tube pan for this recipe, nonstick will not work.
