How to prepare:

Line the bottom of the cake pan with baking paper.

Preheat the oven to 200C/395F (fan oven 180C/360F).

Beat eggs and sugar with a mixer till the mixture runs like a broad ribbon off the whisks.

Sift salt with flour and cornstarch and fold with a wooden spoon into the egg-mixture (the air in the egg-mixture makes the dough rise).

Bake the cake 25 minutes in the middle of the oven.

Let cool (and freeze or) cut in half horizontal.

Add stuffing, i.e. coffee cream, jelly or whipping cream and topping like mocha, jelly with fruit frost or whipping cream. (See recipes.)
