  4. Add the flour and baking powder, then stir until you get a smooth batter,
  5. Pour into a greased 30 cm cake pan,
  6. Bake at 180 degrees celsius oven until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean,
  7. Remove from oven and let cool completely before inverting on a platter,
  8. Whip the cold heavy cream and sugar using an electric mixer until you get stiff peaks,
  9. Flatten the top of the cake using a knife (this trimmed part will also be used to cover the top of the cake so if you think you need more, also trim half a centimeter from the sides),
  10. Cut the cake in half,
  11. Spread some of the whipped cream on top of the first layer, then place the second layer on top,
  12. Now spread the rest of the whipped cream on top and on the sides of the cake,
  13. Crumble the trimmed cake pieces (use a food processor if needed) and cover the top of the cake with them.

Bon appétit…
