Tips

  • Avoid over-mixing after adding the flour as you risk over-developing the gluten in the batter, leading to a tough, dry, and dense cake.
  • When mixing the whites and yolk, whip on low speed and just until combined, otherwise you may deflate the whites.
  •  Make sure there’s no water or liquid in the mixer, as it’ll prevent the egg whites from forming peaks. To know how to whip egg whites perfectly, click here..
  • Keep a close eye on the cake while baking to prevent it from over baking. When over baked, the cake will be dry, and you risk cracking it as you roll it.
  • The cake will be sticky, so use a baking sheet to place the cake.
  • Left over cakes can be store it in the fridge for up to 3 days.
