In a medium mixer bowl beat egg whites with cream of tartar till very stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Scrape the whites over the flour mixture and fold in gently. Pour into an ungreased 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Bake in 350 degree oven for 23 to 30 minutes or till cake tests done. Invert; cool in pan completely. Loosen edges of cake and remove from pan.
