Instructions

  1. Position rack in middle of oven and preheat to 350°F (180°C).

  4. Add flour mixture into egg bowl and whisk for a couple of minutes until cake batter is smooth.

  5. Grease two 7-inch (18 cm) cake pans — or make one at a time if you only have one pan. Pour half of batter in each cake pan and spread out evenly. Bake in oven for 25–30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

  6. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes in pan before transferring to a rack to cool. Wrap layers with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to cool completely, preferably overnight.
