Step 2

Whisk on high speed with electric mixer until foamy; add cream of tartar and vanilla. Continue whisking until the whites are glossy and form stiff peaks, about 5 minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i love this recipie have made it for years i don't have a jellyroll pan so in the past i used a cookie sheet with an edge around it and after baking i flip it onto a towl and roll it up. i sometimes use jam instead of frosting or icecream i traditionally do this at christmas time i make it into a yule log cake cutting a small section off of the end before frosting to make a branch and then frosting and decorating. they turn out great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recipe states: add cream of tartar and VANILLA and continue to beat until the whites are stiff but moist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Problem I found with recipe is that even though ingredients called for 1/2 tsp of vanilla, at no time during the instructions does it tell you to add the vanilla. Recipe needs to be adjusted for this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did it for sunday afternoon and the family just loved it. Since i'm a big fan and lover of chocolate i replaced the vainilla Ice cream with cookies and cream Ice cream. My little 18 months old girl could not keep her hands and little mouth far from the cake. Not very difficult to make and next time it will be Dulce de Leche Ice cream.
