Beat in granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high speed, adding vanilla, and salt with the last addition of sugar. Continue beating until stiff and glossy meringue forms. Do not under beat.
  3. Sprinkle sugar-flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, over meringue, folding in just until sugar-flour mixture disappears. Push batter into ungreased angel food cake pan (tube pan), 10x4 inches. Cut gently through batter with metal spatula.
