Before starting, make sure your eggs are not cold, you can do this by separating the eggs white and yolk then leave them both at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Measure and cut out parchment paper to fit the bottom of your pan or grease its bottom surface. Do NOT grease the side, non-stick pan is not recommended as it doesn't have enough friction for cake to rise onto.
