6. Fold flour lightly into the 3/4 egg mixture in one direction.

7. Lightly mix oil into the 1/4 egg mixture.

8. Combine both mixtures together and mix well. (*Do not over-mix to prevent air bubbles from breaking up, resulting into a coarse and hard cake)

9. Pour into a lined and greased baking tin and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C for about 30 minutes.

10. Remove and leave it to cool.
