Separate yolks and whites. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Beat the yolks with sugar and corn starch until a smooth cream.
Mix the egg whites and yolks carefully.
Bake for 15 minutes, not open the oven during baking. After 15 minutes check that it is ready, remove from oven and throw the pie pan to the floor, do not panic, this way the cake not fallen.
