1. Preheat the oven to 160 °C

Set aside one third of the peaked whites and mix them with the butter base preparation in order to make the batter smoother and add in two to three times the rest of the whites. Mix delicately while lifting the batter.
3. Spread butter and flour in the mold and pour the cake batter. Bake 35 to 40 min. Test the cooking by planting a knife inside the cake, the blade must come out clean. Allow the cake to become tepid then unmold it and place it on a grid so that it can cool down.
