This recipe doesn’t need any liquid, once mixed sift in another cup of wheat flour and now just mix it. Mix until the batter is homogeneous before starting to add in the grated cheese, once you have added the grated cheese, mix it into the batter well then start folding the egg whites that you made earlier ion to the batter. Note that the egg whites are what will give the cake the fluffiness so make sure you carefully fold the egg whites into the batter and not beat it in.
