chocolate sponge cake recipe There are sponge cake recipes that call for butter, which partially tenderizes and adds more flavor to the cake. My basic sponge cake recipe contains no butter but quite a few eggs, making the cake lighter and with very delicate texture.

Here are some tips for successful baking of simple sponge cake recipes:
• Use a scale to measure everything exactly (this goes for any cake).
• Make sure that the eggs are at room temperature.
• Work quickly once you beat the egg whites so the air pockets don’t deflate.

You will find below a basic sponge cake recipe that can be used for all occasions. You just need to vary the form shape and icing. So, if you are making a Valentine’s cake, just use a heart shape form and fill it with your favorite sponge cake batter. One can cut the cake in two or more layers and spread cream in the middle and cover the cake with icing.

sponge cake layers My mother always said that the key to make a good special occasion cake is to make it wet. One makes strong tea, adds a little of strong alcohol (whiskey, cognac, or rum), a tablespoon of sugar, and pours spoonful on the layers of the cake.

If you have kids you can stick to tea only or use fruit juice.

I always first make the layers wet, then spread a thin layer of some sour jam onto the inside layers only. Afterwards, I spread icing onto the jam, place the layers on top of each other and ice the top and sides of the cake.

The sourness of the jelly composes great with sweet icing. My mom usually uses cranberry jelly. Her birthday cakes are always a hit enjoyed by everybody.

One can bake sponge cakes in a large rectangular form and cover with fruits after baking, making beautiful creations with forest berries.

Another option is baking the cake with fruits. You can cut fruits of your choice into small pieces and mix with the batter or place them on top of the batter. You can sprinkle the baked cake with powder sugar.

Another super easy option is a simple dry cake that can be enjoyed with jam or marmalade. You can bake it in bread form or in a round form.

If you bake it in a round form, you can cut it in two round halves and smear jam in between, making a Victoria sponge cake. Below you will find a Victoria sponge cake recipe that is tested and is easy to bake.

I hope that you will enjoy these simple sponge cake recipes
