Sponge Cake Recipes
Two chocolate sponge cakes recipes with basic and simple cooking instructions. Making sponge cakes, whether light or rich has never been as easy.
- 4 eggs,
- ¼ a cup of sugar,
- Pinch of salt,
- 4 tablespoonfuls of bakers cocoa,
- ½ a cup of sifted pastry flour,
- 1 teaspoonful of vanilla.
Separate yolks from whites of eggs; beat yolks in a small bowl with the Dover egg-beater until very thick; add sugar, salt and vanilla, and beat again until very thick. Sift cocoa and the flour together and stir very lightly into the mixture; fold in the stiffly beaten whites of the eggs, and bake in a loaf in a moderate oven until done.
Do not butter the pan, but when cake is baked, invert the pan; and when cool, remove the sponge cake.
