How to make
- Step 1
Cake: Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Mist 13 x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish with cooking spray.
- Step 2
Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in bowl. Set aside.
- Step 3
Beat egg whites in separate large bowl using electric hand mixer (or in stand mixer using whisk attachment) on high speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in granulated sugar until medium peaks form. Add egg yolks; beat until combined.
- Step 4
Add half of the flour mixture to egg mixture; mix on low speed just until combined. Beat in 1/2 cup (125 mL) milk until combined; add remaining flour mixture and beat on low speed just until combined. Scrape into prepared baking dish.
- Step 5
Bake until golden brown and toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean, 26 to 28 minutes. Let cool completely.
- Step 6
Using fork, poke holes all over surface of cake. Combine egg nog with remaining 1/2 cup (125 mL) milk in separate bowl; pour over top of cake. Poke more holes all over surface of cake and run tip of sharp knife along edges of cake, letting egg nog mixture seep down between cake and baking dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight for liquid to soak in, or up to 3 days.
