Sponge Cake

My first decorated sponge cake :D

6 Eggs separated 
1 Cup caster sugar
1 Cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt


Prepare 2 bowls one for the whites and the other for the yolks

Beat the white with the salt for at least 8 mins  with electric mixer it will become thick and voluminous.  & then beat the yolk with the vanilla and sugar until get creamy

Add the creamy mixture to the white bowl 

Gently fold in the flour using large metal spoon, working in a gentle figure of 8 motion to preserve all the air you've whisked in. Keep going until no dry lumps of flour remain.

Preheat the oven to 180

Place it in the oven until golden brown about 30 min

Let it cool before dividing into layers prefer leave it in the refrigerator to the second day

NoteMake sure your eggs are at room temperature before beating them.  Cold eggs do not hold as much air.

Make sure that the electric mixer is dry
