Description

Bica Blanca is a traditional Spanish cake made with purely egg whites for a light elegant color. The cake batter is made from a mixture of sugar, flour, and whipped egg whites and cream to produce a white cake with a light, fluffy texture. Sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar before baking, this elegant cake has texture similar to that of angel food cake. Serve with fresh fruit and whipped cream for a tasty light dessert option.

Ingredients

6 egg whites
salt
325 grams sugar
250 grams flour (sifted)
1/4 liter whipping cream
butter
ground cinnamon

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 180 to 200 degrees Celsius.
2Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt, adding the sugar little by little until stiff peaks are formed. Add the flour, little by little, and mix well.
3Beat the cream until soft peaks are formed and then fold into the egg whites.
4Line a rectangular baking pan with greased parchment paper. Place the batter into the pan and spread evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
5Bake for 35 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven, turn out onto a baking rack to cool, and remove the parchment paper.
