Whip Egg Whites
Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 325 F. With electric mixer

sugar and whip until just stiff and glossy, about 1 minute; set aside.

Finish Batter
Combine flour, remaining sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Whisk water,
oil, egg yolks and vanilla in medium bowl until smooth. Whisk wet mixture into flour
mixture until smooth. Whisk one-third whipped egg whites into batter, then gently fold
