2.Sieve the flour at least 3 times from a height this step is crucial to add volume to the cake.

3. Add eggs and sugar to a clean dry bowl or processor and whip it .

4. Beat the eggs and sugar  until creamy ,preferably use a hand blender ,i have used my processor          with whisk attachment .

5. Transfer the mixture to a dry bowl and check ,if the mixture dropped down retains a ribbon for 10       secs then you are done.this is called ribbon thread consistency .Or else whip it for few more                 seconds.

6.Add vanilla essence and whisk it until well distributed.

7.Now add the flour spoon by spoon and mix it by cut and fold method .

8.Cut it through the centre and swipe it through the sides .

9.Preheat the oven at 170 c .

10.Mix the batter well until no lumps are seen .

12.Bake in the oven for 20 mints or until a tooth pick inserted comes out clean .

13.Allow it to cool completely to room temperature in the tin itself .
