First, add vinegar to egg whites. Whip egg whites till they become frothy and white.
Add sugar in three parts while whipping continuously (use electronic whisk) till they form stiff peaks.
Add whipped egg yolks to the egg whites and fold gently. Mix milk oil and vanilla extract together and whisk.
Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt together and pass it through a sieve.
Add this dry mix in parts to the eggs and fold alternating with milk mix.
Line an eight-inch tin with parchment and bake it for 30 min at 180° with only lower rods on if using an oven.
