CAKE: Preheat oven to 350F. Sift together flour and 1/2 cup sugar into a large bowl. Set aside. IN another bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar; continue beating until soft peaks form. Add remaining 1/2 cup sugar, 2 Tbsp at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.
Fold in flour-sugar mixture, 1/2 cup at a time. Fold in vanilla and strawberries. Pour batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan, spreading evenly and deflating any large air pockets with a knife. Bake 40 minutes, or until cake is lightly browned and springy.
Invert pan and let cake cool 40 minutes. Remove cake from pan and set on a serving plate.
