Recipe for sponge cake from scratch

Posted on

I really like this recipe for sponge cake from scratch. It’s simple and you can also make lots of of various truffles with this base. It is a traditional European sponge cake (aka Genoise). After you have this recipe down (you’ll memorize it after a pair rounds), you’ll be baking issues that look and style like they’re from a elaborate bakery.
