Place eggs & sugar in heatproof bowl or a metal bowl on top of the saucepan, making sure the water does not touch the bowl. Whisk eggs and sugar until lukewarm and sugar has dissolved. Test with your fingertips or food thermometer that mix is 40c and light and foamy.

3Transfer egg mixture to stand mixer bowl and whisk on medium-high for 10 minutes until mix has tripled in volume. Sift flour over egg mixture. Drizzle Nuttelex melted butter over mixture. Gently fold through with the silicone spatula to incorporate, keeping the air in as much as possible.

4Pour mixture into lined baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until cake is lightly browned. Test by inserting a skewer, if the skewer comes out clean, the cake is done. Allow to cool completely in cake tin, then place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
