This super spongy simple cake is best served with a cup of milk. Start by laying the cake mould on a baking sheet and lining them with parchment paper. If you don’t have the moulds, you can use baking tins that are lined with parchment paper, set that aside. Start by sifting 130 grams of cake flour and set that aside then in a large mixing bowl, add 4 eggs and 2 egg yolks then lightly whisk teh eggs to loosen before adding sugar. If the eggs come in direct contact with sugar it is easy to form lumps.
