In large bowl with clean beaters, beat egg whites until frothy. Add sugar gradually, beating to form stiff peaks. Add yolks, 1 at a time. Slowly add flour and milk. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until edges are golden brown, about 40 to 45 minutes, Remove from oven and let cool on a rack. Topping: Combine milks and sour cream (do not beat).

In clean electric mixer bowl with clean beaters, beat egg whites. Slowly pour sugar syrup over egg whites, beating constantly until meringue holds stiff peaks. Store in refrigerator.

Before serving, cut cake into squares and spread Meringue over each. Garnish as desired with fresh berries and mint leaves. "This dessert is a favorite on the menus at many Houston Mexican and South American restaurants.
