Yield: Makes 2 - 8 or 9-inch layers
Heat oven to 350 F. Lightly oil and dust with flour two round 8- or 9-inch layer pans. Beat egg whites until frothy. Gradually beat in 1/2 cup sugar. Continue beating until very stiff and glossy.
Sift remaining sugar, flour, baking powder and salt into another bowl. Add Wesson Oil, half the milk, and vanilla. Beat 1 minute, medium speed on the mixer, or 150 strokes by hand. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl constantly.
Add remaining milk, and egg yolks, then beat 1 minute more, scraping the sides of the bowl constantly.
Fold in meringue. Pour into prepared pans. Bake layers for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool then frost with Seven-Minute Frosting.
