    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees (Fahrenheit)

    Step 2

    Gather ingredients for the cake.

    Step 3

    Sift the flour 3 times. You want to use a bigger sifter than mine, but this is all I could find.

    Step 4

    Separate the egg yolks from the whites, dispose of the yolks

    Step 5

    In a separate bowl, add egg whites and vinegar and beat until frothy (bubbly).

    Step 6

    This is how it's supposed to look when the egg whites are frothy.

    Step 7

    Sorry about the bad picture but, while the eggs are being beaten, add the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time until it starts to form peaks.

    This is how it's supposed to look when it's done.

    Step 10

    This is what the batter is supposed to look like when it is finished

    Step 11

    Add the batter to an UN-GREASED pan. It is very important that the pan is not greased.

    Step 12

    Swirl a knife around the pan to get rid of any air bubbles.

    Step 13

    Bake for 40 minutes ( at 350 degrees)

    Step 14

    While the cake is cooling, gather your ingredients for the glaze.

    Step 15

    Put butter in microwave until melted

    Step 16

    Add melted butter to sugar and stir with a spoon

    Step 17

    Add the milk, and
