Tips- Follow the instructions and ingredients carefully. When folding the flour, remember to mix gently in only one direction using a whisk or spatula. Add fluffy beaten egg whites at the final stage and fold it gently along with the batter using a spatula. Make sure your ingredients are at room temperature. Always sift the flour along with baking powder and baking soda. Sifting adds air and thus lightness to a cake mixture. Always preheat the oven before you start. Also arrange the shelf to be in the middle of the oven. The tin need to be greased and the bottom lined with baking parchment paper.
