This is an old family recipe which I find perfect for a child who is willing to bake. It usually gets eaten very quickly and is lovely with jam or chocolate spread but also on its own with a cup of coffee. As it is parve, it can be served with meat.
Ingredients for a middle-sized cake, serves 4/5 people:
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup potato starch
Break and separate the eggs.
Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until the mixture is white, light and creamy. Add the flour and the starch.
Beat the egg whites until they are stiff and add to the cake mixture. Mix gently.
Pour into a greased baking pan. Bake for about 30 minutes at 300°.
