As I am coeliac I have created this for me, but the original recipe used normal flour, you can also use all cornflour, custard powder, what ever flour you want to try if you want to.


You really want a thick ribbon when you're mixing your eggs and sugar together, this takes time and is what makes the cake light... You can also do this step over a pot of hot water or even use a hand mixer, the heat just helps to stabilize the eggs and they hold more air. Leave the M/C off it is IMPORTANT as it allows the steam to escape and not thin out your eggs. You dont need to add heat at this step, I did it cold for years beofre I got my Thermie.


Cover with Tea Towel as this slows the steam down and can help to prevent a dry cake. Its a great trick leave on for 5-10 minutes before your turn it out


You will see some sponges will hand a fat source to it, and you can with this step add it to the mix beofre you add any dry ingredients and only about 100gm or so of either Fat or oil
