Cottony Soft Honey Cake

I've made this cake once about 1 year ago, 
used a different brand of honey this time, and it taste totally different.
So if you want to make this cake, use your favourite honey! =)

Do not be deceived by the look of this cake...
It's extremely soft and texture is very smooth...
very cottony!
And it's quite a healthy cake!

Gave 1/2 of the cake to my family,
and the rest will be for my man's breakfast.
How weird it is..I don't crave for cakes that I've baked.
I will normally just take a small bite. Maybe I'm really not a fan of sweet stuffs.

Tried to capture the cottony texture,
hope all of you can see it  =)

Cottony Soft Honey Cake

4 Eggs (seperate whites from yolks)
20g Sugar
2 Tbsp Honey
85g Cake/Top Flour
2 Tbsp Oil
2 Tbsp Fresh/UHT Milk
1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar (I omit this)
50g Sugar

1. Preheat oven at 150 degrees
2. Add 20g of sugar into the egg yolks, beat until it turns pale yellow. Mix in honey, beat further till thick. 
Add in milk and oil, mix well.
3. Sieve  flour into egg yolk mixture slowly while folding. Leave it aside when it's done.
4. Beat the egg white till foamy and add in cream of tartar. Add 50g sugar in 2 additions. 
Beat till it becomes meringue like.
5. Fold in meringue into yolk mixture in 3 additions. Fold till mixed well after each addition.
6. Pour it into the cake mould. (I used 20cm pan)
7. Bake it in the preheated oven for 40 mins. or when the skewer comes out clean.
