Yellow Cake

2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound (2 sticks) sweet butter, room temperature
2 cups sugar
4 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sour cream
4 large egg whites

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter and line two 8
x 3-inch baking pans or one 12 x 3-inch pan with parchment.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Cream the butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy
and light in color, about 2 minutes on medium speed. Add the sugar
and continue to mix until fluffy and light.

Add the egg yolks, one at a time, being sure each is well incorporated
before adding the next one. Add the vanilla.

Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the dry ingredients alternately
with the sour cream, beginning and ending with the flour. Be sure
the mixture is completely blended after each addition. Scrape the
sides of the bowl, and beat for 1 minute.

In a separate bowl, with clean beaters, beat the egg whites to soft
peaks. Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the batter with a
rubber spatula.

Pour the batter into the prepared pans and smooth with a rubber
spatula. Bake in the preheated oven, 60 minutes for the 12-inch
square pan or 45 to 50 minutes for the 8-inch pan. The top of the
cake should be nicely browned. Test for doneness with a skewer or
a toothpick\xd1the tester should come out dry and clean.
