Recipe by tanya_g
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F). Line a 31 cm x 21 cm (12" x 8") tin with baking paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites, gradually adding sugar until the mixture is very thick (about 3 min with an electric mixer on high speed).
  • In a small mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until pale and creamy. Add honey and oil, and mix until combined.
  • Fold the honey mixture into the egg whites.
  • Add chopped walnuts and flour. In a tablespoon, combine baking soda with vinegar (the mixture will fizz) and add to mixing bowl. Beat on high speed until well combined.
  • Pour into prepared tin and bake for 50 min, or until a skewer inserted in to the centre comes out clean.
  • Cool cake in tin. To serve, slice into diamond-shaped slices and arrange on a platter.
