Step 1:

Preheat the oven to 320 degrees F.

Step 2:

In a bowl, crack 4 eggs and the 3/8 cup of white sugar. Beat the mixture using a hand mixer or stand mixer until it becomes foamy and light. You can use a whisk but it will take a lot of time before you get the right consistency.

Step 3:

Add the vanilla extract into the mixture and mix again.

Step 4:

Sift the 5/8 cup of cake flour or all-purpose flour into the egg mixture to break up the clumps. Once done, gently mix the flour into the mixture using a whisk until well combined. Then use a spatula to fold the mixture.
