 230g softened butter
35g neutral oil (canola)
500g sugar
7 large eggs, separated
10g vanilla extract
5g almond extract
227g full fat sour cream
390g Mediterranean ‘00’ Flour
3g baking soda
3g salt


Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a fluted Bundt pan with pan spray, then lightly dust with flour until completely coated.

 Separate the eggs. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Place whipped whites in separate bowl and store in the fridge for later use. In the stand mixing bowl, combine butter, oil, sugar, flour, baking soda and salt. Using the whip attachment, whip on low until the mixture comes together, forming a shaggy dough. Add the vanilla and almond extracts to the reserved egg yolks, without breaking them. Replace the whip attachment with the paddle attachment. With the mixer on low-medium, add the yolk mixture a yolk at a time until thoroughly incorporated. Be sure to scrape down the bowl as you go. Add the sour cream and continue to mix on low-medium. Again, scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure all of the liquid has been incorporated. Add ¼ of the reserved egg whites into the batter, using the paddle attachment on low. Remove the bowl from the mixer and combine ½ of the remaining whites to the batter. With your spatula, gently fold the whites into the batter until the two come together. Continue to do the same with the remaining whites and fold until you no longer see traces of whites. Be sure to scrape down to the bottom of the bowl once more to ensure all of the batter has emulsified.

 Place your Bundt pan on a sheet tray and bake at 350F for 50-60min depending on your oven. To test for doneness, insert a cake tester and/or toothpick into the cake. If it comes out clean, it’s done.
