Perfect Sponge Cake Recipe

Updated July 16, 2013

This is a very simple way of preparing a sponge cake. This process is similar to preparing a boxed cake, but avoids the preservatives.

The cakes always turn out perfect and leveled. I use this cake in many recipes, such as Tiramisu and Prune Walnut Cake.

Serving size:
15 min
35 min
Ready in
50 min


Preheat oven to 350F.
Beat 5 eggs (no need to separate them) with sugar until it’s three times in volume. Using a spatula, fold in flour by thirds; be very gentle with the dough so you don't over mix it and lose the fluffiness.
Bake it for 30 minutes, check it with a wooden toothpick. If the cake is ready, dough should not stick to the toothpick.

With Cacao

Add 3 tablespoons of cacao into flour, mix together well. Add same way by thirds into dough.
