Chinese steamed egg cake

178g eggs (about 3 large eggs), beaten
178g sugar
152g cake flour, sifted twice
43g vegetable oil

1. In the bowl of a stand mixer attached to a whisk, on high speed, beat the eggs and sugar together. When ready, the mixture will be light and more than double its size, about 15 minutes.
