Vanilla/Chocolate Sponge Cake

 

Vanilla/chocolate Sponge Cake

Ingredients:

6 egg yolks (large eggs)
60g corn oil
1/4 tsp salt
40g castor sugar
60g full cream milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
110g cake flour
25g corn starch
1/4 tsp baking powder (can omit if you wish)

6 egg whites
60g castor sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1 tablespoon cocoa powder, sifted and blended with 2 tablespoons of hot water

Method:

Line the bottom of an 8″ round baking pan and grease the side. Preheat oven to 160C lowest rack.

1. In a large bowl mix together yolks, oil, salt, 40g sugar, water and vanilla extract. Sift together both flours and baking powder (if using) and add into the mixture and mix until incorporated and smooth. Set aside.

2. Beat egg whites until foamy before adding the cream of tartar and continue to beat until fine foams. Gradually add the 60g sugar and beat until firm peaks.

3. Fold meringue into the yolk batter in 3 portions. Divide final batter into two portions. Add cocoa paste into one portion and gently mix with spatula. Holding the two bowls of batter in each hand, pour the batter simultaneously into the baking pan side by side. Tap gently to remove big bubbles after each layer. Use a skewer to create design on the top if desired. Place the baking pan into another bigger pan; this will act as an insulator to help to regulate the temperature and produce smooth and crack-free cake.

4. I used water bath bake method with top/bottom no fan mode at 160C for 90 minutes. Adjust the temperature and time according to your oven.

5. Remove from pan as soon as possible and cool on rack.
