Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff and gently fold in alternately with the flour. Brush a baking tray with butter or cover with baking paper. Spread the mixture and bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 12-15 minutes. (For Dobo cake, bake 4-5 cake layers).

Now spread 3 sponge cake layers with the cream (leaving some for the edge) and place on top of each other. Place the last sponge cake strip on a buttered parchment paper or a greased wooden board.
