  • 1/2 cup (115 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 large egg whites

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  2. Get your parents help with beating butter, sugar, and salt together in a medium bowl. Add egg whites, one at a time, beating until combined and slightly fluffy.

  3. Add vanilla and buttermilk and beat to combine. Add baking powder and cornstarch and beat very well to combine.

  4. Scrape down sides of bowl and beat one second more. Add flour and mix just until it disappears. Use a rubber scraper to gently fold in sprinkles.

  5. Spread batter in prepared pan and smooth the top. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.

  6. Let cool in pan on cooling rack for 5 minutes, then run a knife around the side to loosen the cake, flip it out onto the cooling rack, and leave to cool completely.
