Accessories you need



Make sure you beat the eggs well. They should rise to be four times the volume and this should take about 3-4 mins. Also fold the flours in really gently, otherwise you will lose all the air you have just put in there… so make sure it is on soft spoon, you can keep the butterfly in place to do this.

    Hi there, did you make sure that you added the flour in slowly it needs to aerate and fold in, doing it for too long will result in a dense cake.

    I made this today and I have to be honest, it didn't turn out at all, I used the right ingredients and followed the recipe, my sponge came out thin and rock solid. Good luck to everyone else who tries it I hope you have more success than me! tmrc_emoticons.)
