Description

Extra tall and fluffy sponge cake dessert!

Ingredients

  • 6 whole Eggs, Separated
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (orange Juice Would Be Fine, Too)
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF and butter and flour a tube-style pan.

In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with a stand or hand mixer until they’ve reached stiff peaks.

In a second bowl, beat together the egg yolks and sugar until they’re fully incorporated and lightened in color. Mix in the vanilla and lemon juice. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and beat into the egg mixture.

Gently fold in the egg whites, careful not to deflate them. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 45-50 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean. Allow to cool fully before removing from the pan.
