Start with making cake dough
Start with butter by melting it and then leaving aside to cool. Then gradually beat the sugar into the egg yolks and add the vanilla extract. In addition, continue to beat the mixture for several minutes until it becomes thick and as a result – paled yellow.
After that beat the egg whites and salt together in a separate bowl until soft picks are formed. Then sprinkle on the sugar and beat until stiff peaks are formed. Start to add egg whites mixture with two-thirds of flour into egg yolks and mix slightly all of these ingredients together. Also, add the remained flour and egg whites and mix them together.
Seems like the cake dough is ready. So, turn the cake into the prepared cake tin which you need to have oiled with a little bit of butter. Furthermore, place the cake into a preheated oven 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Remove the cake from the oven and allow to stand in the pan for 6-8 minutes. Sprinkle icing sugar powder on your butter spongecake. Voila!
