Mkate wa Mayai (Kenyan Sponge Cake)
by Zeina Mohamed
8 OR 6 eggs
1/4 kg of sugar
1/2 cup of milk
1/4 kg of flour
Strawberries (not strictly necessary)
Mix eggs and sugar with a cake mixer, add the milk and the essence and mix well. Add the flour but mix with a wooden spoon. You can crash the berries and add them. Pour the mixer in a baking pan. You can bake in an oven or use a jiko, but use little charcoal. Let it bake for some minutes until it's brown. Use a sharp object to test if it is ready. Serve when it has cooled down with a fresh juice or tea.
