Autore: Stefania Oliveri
  • 180 g gf cake flour (or cornstarch or potato
  • 200 g granulated sugar
  • 6 extra large eggs at room temperature
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest or vanilla extract optional
  1. Put the eggs, sugar, salt, and lemon zest in the bowl of your mixer.
  2. Beat them until very fluffy and pale yellow (about 15/20 minutes on medium/high speed). To test that it has been beaten enough, let a small amount of batter fall into the bowl. If it remains "sitting" on top, it means that it's ready.
  3. Sift the flour on top of the egg mixture, a little at a time, and fold it gently with a wooden spoon.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared pan (buttered pan and sprinkled with cornstarch or a silicone mold or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper). Don't smooth the top or bang the pan on the counter, leave it as it is!
  5. Bake for 40 minutes at 160°C or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Turn off the oven but leave the cake inside (keep the door slightly open using a wooden spoon) for 5/10 minutes so it can cool down slowly.
  7. Remove the sponge cake from the oven, let it cool before using it.
