As much as you like!


1. Separate the egg yolks and egg whites. Sift the cake flour. Preheat the oven to 170°C.
2. Place the egg whites into a bowl, mix until they become a bit fluffy, add in the sugar over 2 turns, whipping well each time.
3. Mix intensely until it turns into a meringue that is glossy and forms stiff peaks. I use a hand mixer.
4. Add one egg yolk to the meringue and mix, add in another once it's mostly mixed in and mix well. Use a hand mixer only up to this point.
5. Switch to an egg beater, add water to Step 4, stir well, add in the re-sifted cake flour, and stir until the flour blends in.
6. After pouring into the mold, bake for about 30~35 minutes. After baking, drop from a height of about 20cm to remove the hot air.
7. Let cool in the mold. After it has cooled, place into a plastic bag etc. If you have time, then it will be easier to do if you slice it up after letting it sit overnight.
8. Decorate as you wish!
