Basic Rules for Making Sponge Cakes
There are a few basic rules that must be followed when making a sponge cake but, you will be able to whip up a tender sponge cake for afternoon tea or dessert without a moment’s thought.
- Eggs for a sponge should be at least three days old and should be at room temperature to give the greatest volume.
- Have the oven ready, tins (pans) prepared and all ingredients assembled and measured before you begin to mix. Once you begin, don’t leave the mixture standing or the air that you have beaten in will start to escape and your sponge won’t rise to its expected heights!
- Close the oven door gently when you put the cake in, and don’t open it until two-thirds of the way through the cooking time.
- Test cakes after minimum cooking time by touching in the center with a finger. When done, they should be springy, elastic to the touch and shrinking slightly from sides of tin (pan).
