  • Sheila (June 28, 2015)

    Lovely cake, may I know what is the size of the eggs used?
    Reduced the flour will yield a softer cake?
    Thanks a lot!

    • Victoria Bakes (June 29, 2015)

      Hi, I use a standard weight of 20g per egg yolk, 40g per egg white. It should be considered large . Lesser flour changes the dry to wet ingredients proportion, so it yields a moist cake with lesser structure, hence, soft in that sense.

      Hope this helps
