  • Sift over the rice flour and baking soda into the mixture,mix well until combined.
  • Add half of the egg whites and gently fold to combine.

  • Transfer the batter into the prepared cake tin and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.Do not over bake,if you do so the cake may turn out dry.( I used a 5″ square pan and a 5″ ring mould and baked for approx 30 minutes)
