Method

  1. 01 / Whisk the eggs

    In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar and a pinch of salt.

    Use an electric whisk or a planetary mixer, and continue whipping for 10 minutes, until the mixture becomes light and frothy.

  2. 02 / Add the flour

    Sift the flour and add it a little at a time to the eggs, mixing gently from the bottom up with a spatula.

    Also add the vanilla extract.

  3. 03 / Bake the sponge cake

    Pour the batter into a buttered and floured cake pan.

    Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    Let cool completely before cutting or stuffing.

You can prepare the sponge cake in advance and store it wrapped in foil in a cool, dry place for a few days.

Do not open the oven during baking, as the sponge cake may deflate.

Store the sponge cake wrapped in foil for a few days or freeze it for up to a month.

Be sure to whisk the eggs until light and fluffy for optimal consistency.

Ingredients for 400-500g of sponge cake

150g 00 flour
150 g sugar
5 eggs
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
