Serves 8


  1. Line a round pan without hole with parchment paper and butter the paper.

  2. Preheat the oven to 180º C.

  3. In a mixer, beat the whole eggs, yolks and sugar for about 15 to 20 minutes (the eggnog has to triple in volume).

  4. When the volume has tripled, without stopping the mixer, add the flour little by little.

  5. Ideally, add spoonfuls of flour. Add the next spoonful, only when the previous one is completely mixed in the eggnog.

  6. After adding all the flour and mixing everything very well, pour the dough into the pan and bake for about 15 to 18 minutes.

  7. Test the toothpick on the sides of the cake. The sides must be cooked, but the center must be moist.

  8. Remove from the oven, wait a few minutes and unmold with the help of parchment paper.

  9. Let cool and serve still warm or cold.
