I am feeling happy while writing this white cake recipe, as my friends forced me to share my best recipe so the other people can get the same flavor as mine.

I had a wish to make the cake in a different way than taste different but it should be delicious and yummy.

This recipe is one of my favorite and close to my heart because I work so hard to make this recipe, I got failed 3 times by making this, but I challenged myself to make it the way I want to. And finally, after 3 failures I was able to get the desired results.

Special Tip 

To keep the cake pure white, just use egg white because by using yolks it will change into light lemon type color.

People who have never beat egg white to reach the stiff peak

I am going to share a simple process that will help you to beat the white egg.

  • add egg white in a medium-size bowl.
  • Keep beating the egg white to get the desired results.
  • The stiff peak will be formed when the egg white increase in the volume. Continue to beat egg until you did not get a stiff peak. Once you get at your point, stop the process.
  • Add your egg white into the white cake material very softly; it’s better to do this process with your hands to get the good results. Make sure you have mixed it well so they are looking a part of butter/material.
  • Do not get panic if the top of the cake turns dark while baking, it will be darker from outside like dark or light brown but from inside it will be pure white.
