Meanwhile, break the eggs and separate the yolks from the egg whites (they can be at room temperature or cold in the fridge).

Beat the egg whites using the salt mixer or whisk and, when they become foam, add the sugar and the vanilla sugar, continuing the mixing until it melts well and homogenizes the pandispan top composition.

Add the yolks one by one, incorporating them nicely along the way, continuing to mix with the mixer or whisk.

Add the oil and rum and vanilla essences, which will give this cake a unique taste and will hide the aroma of the eggs that would normally come out, and mix for a few more minutes.
