Continue mixing until you start to see the air bubbles which indicate that the dough is ready.
Prepare the chosen cake pan with a thin layer of butter and finally flour and pour the dough ready to be baked. Cook for about 30 minutes at 180 ° C and test the cooking with a toothpick.
As soon as the base of the cake is ready, let it cool well, cut it into one or two layers and move on to preparing the filling.
