Sponge Vanilla Cake

Ingredients :

(+) 1 cup cake flour
(+) 3 eggs
(+) 1/2 cup white sugar
(+) 2 Tablespoons milk
(+) 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
(+) 1/2 tsp baking powder
(+) 1/2 tsp white vinegar

(*) Milk and eggs should be at room temperature. Don’t use while cold .

Instructions :

1.) Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks .
Add the egg whites in a large bowl, then add vinegar.

2.) Beat for 2 minutes then gradually add sugar . Don’t add all the sugar at once . Add it into 4 divisions. Beat until you get a white stiff consistency. ( It takes 10-12 minutes using an electric mixer).

3.) When the egg whites have formed a stiff consistency. Mix in one egg yolk at a time .Then add vanilla, oil and milk and mix .

4.) Sift in flour and baking powder. Then gently fold . Use a silicone spatula or hand whisk . Don’t use an electric mixer for this stage .

5.) Pour the batter (mixture) in a prepared baking pan . I used 8 inch pan but I recommend 6 inch pan .

6.) Bake in a preheated oven at 160 Degrees Celsius for 35 minutes.

(*) Do not open the oven while the cake is not fully baked otherwise it will collapse in the middle.
