CONNIE's Story

I am a big fan of cooking shows, especially those on baking. I found this recipe a few months ago from Cake Boss & now it's all I use for my sponge cakes. The secret to this cake being Light & Fluffy is the beating of the eggs. Don't rush that step.

Ingredients

4 large
eggs at room temp
2 c
white granulated sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
whole milk
1/4 c
unsalted or lightly salted butter
2 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt (use 3/8 tsp if using unsalted butter)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Beat eggs in large mixing bowl (with paddle attachment if possible) for 4 minutes. Do not shorten the time.
2
Add sugar and continue beating for another 4 - 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and stir on low just until combined.
3
In a separate, sift together dry ingredients. Add to eggs and sugar on low speed just until combined.
4
In a saucepan (or microwave) heat milk and butter just until the butter is melted. Add to batter, beat just until combined.
5
Pour into two greased and floured 8" pans.
6
Bake at 325 about 33 - 35 mins or until the middle springs back when touched, or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
7
Remove from oven and let stand in pans for 10 mins. Then turn out onto a wire cooling rack and cool completely before frosting.

Hi there! Could you use this cake to add a filling like fruit or a pudding in the middle and cover it with butter cream and fondant?
It looks delicious!!!

Hello Connie. I'm new to your site but I read with great interest this white sponge mix and hope to try this for the New Year. However, do you have a favourite chocolate recipe that has worked every time? I'll be grateful for your kind assistance. Also, I'm about to make a 14" sponge (I have a recipe for a high density 8" round) but I wondered if I should double the mixture, use enough of the mixture for the 14" pan and use the rest for another cake. If you have make a sponge this large and have a recipe you can share, I shall be so grateful. Thanks in advance.
