100g plain flour
Pinch of salt

Method:

1. Put oil in a large mixing bowl together with the egg yolks and whisk to combine. Add in coconut milk , salt and juice and whisk again to mix then lastly add the flour. Mix well and set aside.
2. Beat the egg whites until foamy then gradually add sugar to beat until firm peaks form.
3. Add 1/3 of the meringue into the yolk batter and using the hand whisk to mix until combined. Add the next 1/3 portion and whisk again. Finally, add the last portion, whisk briefly before switching to spatula to scoop the batter from bottom and fold up on to the batter to make sure all are combined and no more yolk batter can be seen.
4. Pour into prepared pan and bake in water bath at 190C for 15 minutes before lowering to 145C for another hour or until the cake bounces back when you lightly press the top.
5. Remove from oven and leave it for a couple of minutes before unmoulding.

    Hi Jeannie,
    I have just tried out this recipe. thanks for sharing it. . Normally I baked your sponge cake it won’t crack at top but this time it cracks. I bake at 150 consistently bcos my microwave oven can’t adjust the temp while baking. Is it bcos of this it cracks?

      Well, if you have baked other recipes without the cake cracking then it could be your meringue is over beaten. Too stiff meringue will cause your cake to crack.

        Hi Jeannie, ya probably but the texture is very soft. My colleague thought it’s cheese cake. Thanks for your superb recipe.

      You can grease it for easier unmoulding. If not greased, you may gave to run a knife round the sides.
