How to make sponge cake


Soft and light, sponge cake is the base of many cakes and other desserts.

Ingredients for 4 people

4 eggs
5 oz sugar
4 oz all-purpose flour
1 oz potato starch


Add 2 eggs and 2 egg yolks to a bowl.

Add the sugar and whisk until frothy. The batter should be light in color and have doubled in volume.

Sift then flour and starch. Using a spatula, fold the flour and starch into the batter, working from the bottom up.

Once the batter is well mixed, pour it into a cake pan that has been greased and floured. Fill the pan only halfway.

Bake in a non-convection oven at 350° F for 25 to 30 minutes.

To test the doneness of the cake, poke it with a toothpick If it comes out dry, then it is done.

Before cutting or decorating the cake, let it cool on a rack.
