We start with the preparation of the first countertop. Thus, we mix the yolks with the sugar until it reaches the consistency of a cream, then we incorporate in this flour previously mixed with the baking powder. Continue mixing and gradually add the oil, water and grated lemon peel (don't forget to wash the lemon very well before grating the peel; if you don't buy organic lemon).
We let the first countertop rest a little, as it would have been for him than we kept spinning it in the bowl, and we don't rest at all but we take care of Countertop II. And here things are just as simple. Mix the egg whites well, well, until we turn the bowl and the composition does not fall, then continue mixing, gradually adding a tablespoon of sugar, flour mixed with baking powder, water, oil and last but not least, my favorite ingredient - vanilla extract. If you do not have homemade extract, you can buy a good replacement at a good price and very fragrant. You have a link here to see what I'm talking about!

Fluffy cake recipe with cocoa
Even if it is one of the classic recipes, regardless of the weather, it does not lose its charm, both due to the taste and the fact that it cooks extremely fast. You do not need more than 60 minutes to prepare this tasty and nutritious dessert.
- 200 g flour
- 6 egg whites
- 6 yolks
- 200 g sugar
- 4 tablespoons oil
- 3 tablespoons cocoa
- vanilla sugar
- baking powder.
Method of preparation:
One of the secrets of making a fluffy cake is how well the whites are beaten. So you can start with this step. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until you get a thick, glossy foam like meringue. You can use either a classic, pear type tel, or an automatic kitchen mixer that can do the job for you, quickly and easily. After beating the egg whites, you can add the sugar little by little, continuing to mix. When the sugar has melted, in a separate bowl, put the yolks and, over them, gradually add the four tablespoons of oil and mix gently, carefully, as when preparing mayonnaise. When the two ingredients have blended, you can add them over the beaten egg whites. Stir gently from bottom to top to allow the foam to release and lose volume. Separately, incorporate in the 200 g of flour the baking powder and add it over the already prepared dough. When the flour has incorporated very well, separate the dough into two portions and in one of them add three tablespoons of cocoa. Stir until you get a cocoa cream. Thus, you will have two doughs, the one with cocoa and the one without. The check is almost ready. All that remains is to prepare the baking tray. Wallpaper the bottom of a cake pan with baking sheet and a little oil, then you can start pouring the two doughs. It is ideal to put, in turn, one tablespoon of each composition, so that they mix evenly. You can then put the tray in the preheated oven, over medium heat, for 30-40 minutes. Finally, to make sure the cake is ready, you can check it by inserting a toothpick into the dough. If it is clean and no dough remains on it, then the cake is ready and you can serve it, after it cools, with a cup of warm milk or a flavored tea.
