    Use clean electric beaters to beat egg whites and reserved sugar in a large clean, dry bowl until firm peaks form. Use a large metal spoon to fold half the egg whites into the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the remaining egg whites until just combined. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden and a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
