  14. Hi!! Ok now I'm here!! :)

    Did u have to beat the sugar and eggs till ribbon stage before addin the flour etc for Section B? When someone says Beat, it means a Beater attachment? Otherwise it'd be a Whisk, right?

    Going to make this tonight... Thanks!


    1. Hi TJ,

      Yes, for most sponge cake, you need to whisk the egg+sugar until ribbon stage or thick before you add flour and liquid batter. But in this cake, we use separated egg method, where you need to beat the egg whites until stiff peak, so you will get a sponge result.

      Regarding on beat or whisk, I agree with you. Beat usually use hand whisk, while whisk use electric whisk.

      All the best for you :))
