How To Make 3 Ingredient Sponge Cake Recipe

via Sweet Cookie Pie, Youtube.

Separate 3 eggs into a medium bowl. Put the egg whites in a small bowl and the egg yolks in a large bowl.

Whip egg whites with a mixer starting at low speed and gradually increasing to high speed. Once the mixture is light consistency, add 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar.

Continuously beat for 3-5 minutes until glossy and stiff peaks form.

Beat egg yolks until broken up, add 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar until it becomes a light yellow color.

Sift in 3 tablespoons of cake powder. Mix until well combined, folding in flour. A spatula works best.

Add in meringue, fold it in by scooping and folding one third at a time. The Batter should be nice and smooth.

Line a 5-inch (12cm) cake pan with parchment paper sides and bottom. Fill up with batter. Give a shake and tap to remove air bubbles.

Bake at 320F or 160C for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Set on a cooling rack. Once cooled, remove parchment paper carefully.

Start slicing layers evenly.

Decorating Your Sponge Cake

Layer with a base of whipped cream and then layer with your choice of fresh berries.

Add the next layer and repeat the process. Add the final layer and finish off with whipped cream. It is optional if you want to cover the sides.

Add fruits and any other decorations and drizzle with chocolate sauce.

Leave it for 3-5 hours in the fridge so the flavors meld together and then serve.

Kitchen Notes

There have been a number of people that have commented that whilst it is a delicious cake, it tasted a bit eggy.

The best way to ensure that you don’t have this result is to add some vanilla extract and lemon zest.
