FOR CAKE: Line 11x17 inch jelly roll pan with waxed paper, extending paper 2 inches beyond edges of pan. Butter paper; dust lightly with flour, shaking off excess. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 375 degrees. Sift flour with baking powder and salt; set aside.
With steel knife blade, place egg whites in work bowl and turn machine on. After 8 seconds, pour in vinegar and 1 tablespoon water and process until egg whites are whipped and hold their shape, about 70 seconds. Using rubber spatula, gently transfer whites to 1-quart mixing bowl. Do
not wash work bowl.
Combine egg yolks, sugar, orange juice concentrate and remaining 2 tablespoons water in work bowl and blend 1 minute. Add flour mixture in ring around inside of work bowl. Spoon egg whites onto flour. Blend using 2 on/offs turns; scrape down sides of work bowl. Process with 2-3 more on/off turns just until batter is mixed (some streaks of egg white may remain; do not over process).
Using rubber spatula, spread batter evenly in prepared pan. Tap pan lightly on counter to remove air bubbles. Bake until lightly browned, 12-14 minutes. Sift powdered sugar evenly over top. Cover cake with piece of waxed paper, then with dampened towel. Invert the cake onto paper and cool, approximately 30 minutes. Carefully peel off top sheet of waxed paper.
