Alternately add flour mixture and sugar syrup to egg yolk mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined.
  5. Thoroughly wash beaters. In a clean medium mixing bowl beat egg whites on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into batter. Spread batter in the prepared pans.
  6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near centers comes out clean. Cool cake layers in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes. Remove cake layers from pans. Cool thoroughly on wire racks.
