  1. Preheat oven to 200 C. Line two 30x45cm baking trays with parchment paper. Fit a large pastry bag with a plain round tube.
  2. Place egg whites in bowl and beat on high until soft peaks start to form. Slowly add 2 tablespoons of the sugar and continue beating until stiff and glossy.
  3. In another bowl beat egg yolks and remaining sugar. Whip until thick and very pale in colour.
  4. Sift flour and baking powder. Fold half the egg white whites into the egg yolk mixture. Fold in flour, and then add the remaining egg whites.
  5. Transfer mixture to the pastry bag and pipe sponge fingers, about 10-15cm in length, out onto prepared baking trays.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes or until firm to touch and golden in colour.
