    1. Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350ºF/180ºC/gas 4. Generously butter a 9-in/23-cm cake pan with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter. Line the bottom of the pan with a circle of parchment paper. Butter the parchment paper. Set aside.
    2. Combine the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter with 2 tablespoons of hot water in a glass measuring cup. Keep warm.
    3. Place the eggs in the bowl of your KitchenAid® Stand Mixer fitted with the wire whip. Attach the KitchenAid® Sifter + Scale Attachment to your mixer. Close the ingredient valve. Weigh the sugar in the ingredient hopper. Turn the mixer to high speed and whip the eggs for 1 minute. Open the ingredient valve, and sift the sugar into the mixing bowl. Beat the eggs and sugar until the mixture turns thick and pale yellow, and the mixture falls in ribbons from the whip, about 8 to 10 minutes. About 5 minutes into the mixing time, slowly pour the vanilla down the side of the bowl.
