A wonderful cake and is not easy to make.  I had tried it at least 3-4 times before I succeeded to produce the right texture.  Not necessary to use a wooden frame, a normal baking tin lined with aluminum foil and parchment paper will also produce a great cake.

A normal tin wrapped in foil and lined with parchment paper

Beat egg whites (4) till firm and add in egg yolks (4) one at a time at low speed till well combined.  Mix in 100g well-sieved bread flour and mix well.  Lastly drizzle in 50g honey (diluted with 2 tablespoons warm water) and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.  Mix in 1 tablespoon grated lemon peels.  Pour batter through sieve into baking tin and smoothen top of batter to remove bubbles.  Tap pan on the floor a few times to remove bubbles.

Bake cakes for 50 mins at 140C.  When baked drop the cake tins on the floor a few times to avoid cake shrinkage

Overturn tins and place on a stand till cool

Cake is well flavored when keep wrapped overnight in the fridge
