Light cake

Light cake


  • 6 eggs.
  • 200 gr sugar
  • 75 gr flour.
  • 75 cornflour.
  • Lemon zest.
  • Salt.


Here we go:


Separate the yolks and whites in two different bowls And paint the paint with butter :)

Claras montadas

Make sure that there is no egg yolk in the bowl, otherwise the whites will not mount properly.

Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites to help the process. Begin beating the whites using an electric whisk, gradually increasing the speed.


Mix both flours and sieve it.

Also, add sugar and lemon zest to the yolks.

Whisk until custard.

Add some sieved flour to the custard.

Merge slow, doing circles.

Add the rest of it and merge again :)

Repeat the process with the mounted whites.

And… it´s done!


Custard, pan and oven :)

Pre-heat oven: 180ºC

Bon apetit
