  • Using a spatula, fold in the flour by thirds just until it's combined. Be extra careful not to over mix it batter, or the cake will lose its fluffiness.

  • Place the batter into a greased 9-inch pan and bake it for 30 minutes. To check doneness, stick a toothpick into the center of the cake. If it comes out clean, it's ready.
