How to Make Simple Vanilla Sponge Cake Roll Cake
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Line a half sheet pan with a silpat and grease with either shortening or butter-sides and bottom silpat also.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer using the whisk attachment, beat eggs and sugar on low, increasing speed gradually to high, beating for 10 minutes or until light and very very fluffy-doubling in size or more.
If you don't have cake flour, remove 1 Tablespoon of flour to substitute and sift with baking powder. Gradually add flour mixture to mixing bowl, mixing on low, adding vanilla, and increase to medium speed and beat 1 minute.
- When you remove it from the oven immediately pull off top layer of cake-very thin and dark. This will expose the soft inside of cake and make it very easy to roll. Flip pan over onto another half sheet pan and peel off silpat. Flip back over. (if cake sticks, loosen edges with fingers, pulling gently away from sides of pan before flipping)
