This is a simple and fluffy standard sponge cake.

Ingredients: 18 cm diameter cake

Cake flour
80 g

2. Put the eggs and sugar in a bowl and heat in a 50℃ double boiler. Once it becomes warm to the touch, remove from the double boiler and beat (until it reaches the stage where you can draw an S on the surface).
3. Beat until it becomes thick and white, sift the drt ingredients again, and fold into the batter in 2-3 portions.
4. Warm the butter and milk in the microwave and quickly mix it all together (the butter will melt at about 40-50℃).
5. Pour the batter into the cake pan and lightly drop the cake pan on a table to release the air. Bake in an oven at 70℃ for 30-35 minutes.
6. Once baked, remove from the cake pan and peel off the parchment paper. Let cool on a rack.
7. Adjust the temperature and time to your oven. Keep an eye on it as it bakes.
8. Step 2: Beat until the batter forms ribbons when lifted. Step 6: If a skewer or toothpick pushed into the center comes out clean, it's done baking.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a sponge cake I've made for a long time. If you would like a chocolate sponge cake, reduce the flour by about 10 g and add about 20 g of cocoa.
