Preparation method

  • In a blender, blend the sugar and pistachio until smooth.
  • Add the egg whites and tempura flour and blend until smooth.
  • Transfer to a siphon and aerate with two cartridges.
  • Shake well and spray into paper cups.
  • Fill the cups by no more than 30%, as they will rise considerably.

  • Let the cups cool upside-down and then cut them open to turn out the cakes. 

Serving suggestions

  • In a desert with multiple chocolate components.
  • As a component of a friandise: you could dust the sponge cake with cocoa powder, for example.
