 1. Preheat oven to 180° C. Brush a gugelhupf pan with melted butter to

lightly grease.


2. Beat the caster sugar, melted butter till

it is smooth. Add egg yolks and mix in the flour and  milk.


3. Use an electric beater to whisk the egg whites in a  bowl until soft peaks form. Gently and gradually fold the egg white into the cake mixture.
