1 cup sifted cake flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
11 large egg whites
1 1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Prepare Lemon Sauce; set aside.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Sift together flour and next 3 ingredients.

Beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar; beat until soft peaks form. Add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Slowly pour in molasses, beating egg white mixture until sugar dissolves. Fold in flour mixture over egg white mixture, 1/4 cup at a time. Add vanilla.

Spoon batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan, spreading evenly. Break air pockets by cutting through batter with a knife. Bake at 350° for 35 to 38 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Invert cake pan; cool completely. Loosen cake from sides of pan, using a narrow metal spatula. Invert cake onto plate. Serve with Lemon Sauce.
