1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray with cooking spray two 9” round non-stick baking dishes. Line the bottoms with a circle of parchment (baking) paper (cut to fit). Set aside.
In separate bowl combine flour and baking powder; sift.
Gradually add sugar and beat for about 4-5 minutes.
Carefully add 1/3 of the flour mixture and with rubber spatula fold in slowly so the batter stays fluffy. Continue until you finish adding the flour and it will get well incorporated. Make sure to NOT over fold it.
Split the batter into the baking dishes and bake until it get golden brown for about 25-30 minutes. Check if the cake is ready with a tooth pick, if nothing sticks to it, it is done. Remove cakes from the oven. Run a thin knife around the inside of the pan to loosen the cake; Place a wire rack on top of the cakes and invert. Slowly lift off the parchment paper. Turn the cake back over onto the rack and let cool.
