I got this recipe from a more famous foodblogger than me, : the only variation is about cooking time, I  found it too short. Easy recipe but can easily come out wrong as all simple things. Even in this recipe I have heated the eggs with the sugar to 45 degrees according to the method Montersino, before whipping them. 

Serves: 8/10

  • 300g starch
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 200g soft butter
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 sachet baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt

1. Heat the eggs with sugar over low fire up to 45° always whisking, then pour into an electric blender and mix with a pinch of salt for about 15 minutes till you earn a very frothy cream like this:
2. Add the softened butter and continue mixing with the electric blender. Add by hand the starch sifted with the baking powder stirring gently from bottom to top with a spatula to get a homogeneous mixture. Pour into a greased mold covered with parchment paper and bake in preheated oven at 160° for 20 minutes and 180° for 30 minutes, make toothpick test. Let cool and sprinkle with lots of icing sugar.
