    Chef Gorete's Note:

    This is a delicious light and airy textured sponge cake. It tastes just like the ones I used to buy at a portuguese bakery. Yummy served with vanilla ice cream and strawberries.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350°F Grease and parchment paper line a 10 inch tube pan, set aside.

      Beat the eggs with the salt until light. Gradually beat in the sugar at medium speed and beat for at least 20 minutes, add rind if using. At low speed, add the flour mixture to the eggs one heaping tablespoon at a time, blending well after each addition, and scraping down the sides of the bowl when necessary.
    3. 3
      Pour the batter into the pan and bake for approximately 40 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean (cake will spring back to a light touch).
    4. 4
      Let the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and peel off parchment paper. Let cool completely on rack. Dust with icing sugar before serving if desired.

      A lovely light classic Portuguese cake. Please clarify step 2, beat 20 minutes or until...? Ensure that it cooks right through for the 40 minutes.. Sometimes it stays a bit tacky on top!

      I make this cake quite often, but I always add gratted lemon zest and if I dont have lemons at hand I add in orange zest, it give the cake a great flavour and wonderful smell. This cake is a must in the Holiday seasons. Goes good with just about anything.
