1. Preheat the oven

Preheat the oven to 165 degrees celsius, and line a 7 inch square pan with parchment paper.

2. Mix the ingredients

In a stand mixer, or hand mixer, add sugar and eggs. Beat on medium to high speed until light and fluffy. Add flour bit by bit. Avoid adding it all at once since the egg mixture will collapse and become dense.

Once the flour is incorporated, finish the mixture by adding milk. Combine at a low speed and do not overmix the batter.
