  • the egg white will not whip up properly if there is any trace of egg yolk in the white. so separate carefully.
  • Over baking causes dry cake, so check 5mins beforehand, as oven temperature may vary.
  • underbaking will shrink the cake after cooling down
  • use a piece of aluminum foil to cover the cake after you achieve the right golden brown color you like to stop burning the top 
  • the recipe does not require any baking powder but you can use 1tsp if you like
