    So far, I have only see beat eggs and sugar till thick and pale yellow. Your receipe called for “light and fluffy”.

    Can you advice me how can I tell if is light and fluffy stage (Eg, if ridges is form, estimated how many minutes of beating time to reach that stage)

    Thank you so much.

    • Emmy says:

      Wait! So are we supposed to beat the eggs and sugar until pale thick and yellow (5 minutes beating time)? Or just until combined (2 minutes beating time).
      PLZ reply ASAP Bee!
      I really wanna make this cake, but I’m very confused on the steps with the beating the sugar and eggs.
