Recipe For Sponge Cake
- 6 large eggs separated
- 100 grams flour
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 200 grams granulated sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 zest of lemon
- ¾ tsp cream of tartar
- Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven.
- Have ready an ungreased bundt pan.
- Cover the bowls with plastic wrap and bring the eggs to room temperature for about 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, sift or whisk the sifted flour with the baking powder and salt. Set aside.
- Gradually add the 65 grams of sugar and continue beating until the egg whites are shiny and form stiff peaks.
- Gently fold a little of the beaten egg whites into the batter to lighten it, and then add the rest of the whites.
- Bake in preheated oven for 28 - 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
- Remove from the oven and immediately invert the pan (turn upside down) and suspend it by placing the inner tube on the top of a flat-topped glass or bowl.
- Allow the cake to cool completely before unmolding (about one hour). Run a flat metal spatula or sharp knife around the inside of the pan and then remove the center core of the pan.
- Run the spatula along with the bottom and center core of the pan. Invert the cake onto a greased wire rack.
- The cake can be served plain with a dusting of powdered sugar or with fresh fruit and softly whipped cream. This cake can be covered and stored for a few days, or it can be frozen.
