- 1 1/4 cups sifted flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup peanut or corn oil
- 1/3 cup water
- 1 tsp vanilla flavor
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 3 egg whites
- 3 egg yolks
Step 1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius
Step 2. Mix flour, salt, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl
Make a small hole in the center of the mixture, then pour in the water, oil, egg yolk, and vanilla. Beat the ingredients for 2 minutes until smooth.
Step 3. In another bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff
This step is very important so that the cake has a soft texture.
Step 4. Mix the beaten eggs into the first mixture until smooth
Pay attention, don't stir this dough. Simply fold the two (stir back) until evenly mixed.
Step 5. Pour the batter into a non-oiled baking sheet
We recommend using a 20-23 cm round pan, or a 20 cm square pan.
Step 6. Bake the dough in the oven for 1 hour, or until the cake is bubbly when lightly touched with your fingers
Step 7. Remove the cake when it is finished cooking
Turn the pan over until the cake is cold. You can place the center of the pan on top of the bottle, but be careful not to drop the cake.
Step 8. Shake the edges of the cake with a spatula or pastry knife
If you want, you can apply a layer of frosting or frosting on top of the cake before serving.
