1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup salad oil
5 unbeaten egg yolks
3/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1 cup egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Method

Sift dry ingredients into mixing bowl; make a well in dry ingredients.  Add salad oil, egg yolks, and pineapple juice in the order given.  Beat until satin smooth.  Combine egg whites and cream of tartar in a large mixing bowl.  Beat until they form very stiff peaks (stiffer than for meringue or angel cake).  Fold egg yolk batter gradually into egg whites.  Bake in 10-inch tube pan in a moderately slow oven (325-degrees) 55 minutes, then in moderate oven (350-degrees) 10 minutes.
