  • 1Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • 2Prepare an 8-inch round cake pan by lightly greasing and lining the bottom and sides of it with greaseproof baking paper or parchment paper. Note: You don't want to use a springform pan unless it is water tight because this cake is baked in a water bath.

  • 4Fold in the flour, cornstarch, egg yolks, lemon juice and mix well.
  • 5Whisk egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy.
  • 6Add the sugar into the egg white mixture and whisk until soft peaks form.
