Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the eggs and sugar in a bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until it is light and foamy. Add the vanilla and continue mixing. 
  2. Sift the flour into the mixture and stir until there are no clumps. Whisk the batter until well combined, then use a spatula to fold the mixture. 
  3. Pour the batter into a 6-inch round baking pan that's been lined with parchment paper. Drop the pan on the counter to remove any air bubbles. 
  4. Bake in a preheated 320-degree F oven for about 25 to 30 minutes or until golden on top. Cool completely before removing from the pan. 

Note: The original recipe is called three-ingredient sponge cake. The vanilla was optional. We feel that this ingredient is important to the cake, so our recipe is a four-ingredient vanilla sponge cake.
