You will need:

4 eggs, room temperature

¾ cup caster sugar

125g butter, melted

1 tsp vanilla extract

¾ cup plain flour

2 tsp Kfibre

2 cups milk, lukewarm

¼ cup icing sugar to decorate

Make it:

  1. Preheat oven to 175° Celsius and line a 20cm baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Separate eggs. Put egg whites into a clean and dry bowl. Using an electric mixer whip egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks and caster sugar until light and fluffy. With mixer on a low speed, gradually add melted butter, and vanilla. Combine flour and Kfibre in a small bowl and slowly add to egg yolk mixture a few spoonful’s at a time, mixing well. Gradually add the warm milk and continue to beat on a low speed until all ingredients are well combined.
  4. Fold in egg whites, 1/3 at a time until just incorporated. Don’t worry if there are a few lumps in the batter. You want these to help keep the cake airy.
  5. Pour batter into lined cake tin and bake for 35-40 minutes until a golden crust forms. Cake should still be a little jiggly in the middle. Allow to cool. Dust with icing sugar just before serving
