Classic Chocolate Sponge Cake



























This reminded me of the birthday cakes i had in my childhood days;the chocolatey taste the soft fluffy texture.I have been using this sponge recipe for sometime but have yet uploaded until yesterday a handful of members asked me for it(cannot be lazy and disappoint them.Ha~).

This recipe is really easy as its using optimal flour or you can call it sponge mix flour.Well you can say its not from scratch but i am not really bothered by the fact as i am more concerned in getting the taste and texture i want. I don't want to waste ingredients on cakes that give me eggy taste/dry texture which is common with sponge cakes.And most importantly,this cake don't dry out.

Makes:
  • 8 slices (2 layers)

You will need:

188g optima flour
1.5 tablespoon cocoa powder
3/4 tablespoon chocolate paste (i mixed cocoa powder with hot water)
3 eggs
45g cold water
60ml oil
1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract

*Whipping cream/Frosty whip for cream
*Chocolate rice for topping

The Preparation & Baking:
  1. Whisk all ingredients except oil and extract till thick.
  2. Add oil and extract and whisk till well combined.
  3. Bake in a lined swiss roll tin(abt 30cm by 22cm)  for about 20 minutes at 180°C
  4. Remove from parchment paper immediately
  5. Cool on wire rack.
The Assembly:
  1. Cut all ends(discard into your mouth,ha~) and then cut the cake into half.
  2. Spread cream on the top side of both cake.
  3. Place one on the other.
  4. Sprinkle chocolate rice.
  5. Slice according to the desired size you want.
  6. Chill for at least an hour before serving.
