Fold in the stiff each whites. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Place the pan on the rack, in the center of the oven. Bake the cake for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the center of the cake comes out clean with a toothpick. Remove the cake from the oven and place on a wire rack. Cool the cake for 15 minutes. Remove the sides of the pan and cool completely. Invert the cake onto a serving plate. The cake can be served warm or can be placed in the refrigerator and chilled.
