0 Failure – Classic Chocolate Sponge Cake

A sponge cake is a puffy confection made by filling the egg white with a large amount of air and baking it with flour, so named because its structure resembles that of a porous sponge.

As two of the most basic cakes in the baking world, sponge cakes and chiffon cakes are a must-have for baking beginners.

Only after you have mastered them will your baking journey be easier and smoother. The most common problem when making a sponge cake is that it does not grow high, and the reason for this is that it is mainly defrosted.

The sponge cake Timexing is making today uses the split-egg method, which has a higher success rate and is safe for newbies to make.

③Pour the egg yolks into the egg white batter and beat well.

④ Add half of the sifted low flour and mix well, then add the other half of the flour and mix well.

⑤ Take a little of the batter and mix it with the butter, then pour it back into the larger batter and continue to mix well.

⑥ Line the moulds with greaseproof paper, pour into the moulds and shake out the air bubbles. Bake in a preheated oven at 150°C for about 50 minutes for a 6-inch bake, 150°C for an 8-inch bake and 70 minutes for a 10-inch bake.
