This cake recipe has been my favourite for years! It is soft, spongy and simple as it is!
250g Salted butter
135g Fine sugar
5 Eggs (Separated)
135g Plain flour (Sift)
2 TSP Baking powder (Sift)
Beat butter for 5 minutes at high speed.
Add sugar and continue beating for another 5 minutes.
Add egg yolks one at a time at low speed…
Add flour and baking powder. (Do not over beat!)
Whisk egg whites till stiff in a seprate bowl and add into cake batter.
Stop beating once the egg white has incorporated.
Grease a 8″ pan.
Bake at 345 F or 175 C for 1 hour.
