       5    Eggs, separated
     3/4 ts Cream of tartar
   1 1/2 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Water
       1 ts Vanilla
   1 1/2 c  Flour
       1 ts Baking powder
       2 c  Whipping cream
            Strawberries, optional
     In a bowl beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar and beat until
   stiff peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar. Set aside. Beat egg yolks until
   thick and lemon colored. Stir in water and vanilla.
     Sift flour twice with baking powder. Stir flour into egg-yolk mixture by
   hand, until thoroughly combined. Fold in egg-white mixture. Pour mixture
   into 2 (8-inch) round parchment-lined cake pans and bake at 350 degrees
   about 30 to 40 minutes, or until wood pick inserted in center comes out
   dry. When cool, divide each cake into 2 layers. Whip cream. Save enough
   whipped cream to decorate outside of cake. Add crushed strawberries with
   juice to rest of whipped cream. Then spread on top of layers.
