Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in vanilla.
Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.
Spoon batter into a greased and floured 13 1/2- x 9 1/2-inch book-shaped cake pan. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan 10 minutes; remove from pan, and let cool completely.
