I'm back, and I hope all is well. I decided on a sponge cake today. This is very good, but like I said before you will have to try it and decide for yourself. Every ones taste buds are different. I think this one is also good with strawberries and a dollop of whipping cream. Enjoy. until tomorrow.
*Hot Water Sponge Cake*
2 Eggs, Separated
¼ Cup Hot Water
1¼ Tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/8 Tsp. Salt
1 Cup Cake Flour
1½ Tsp. Baking Powder
Preheat oven at 325°F. Line the bottom of a 9-inch square pan with parchment paper. With a mixer, beat the egg yolks, hot water, and vanilla extract together until it is very thick and pale. Slowly beat in a half cup of the sugar; set aside. Beat the egg whites until foamy, add the salt, and continue beating until soft peaks form. Slowly beat in the remainder ¼ cup of sugar and beat until stiff, not dry. Stir in ¼ of the whites into the yolk mixture and sift the flour and baking powder on the top of them. Carefully fold in the remaining egg whites until blended. Poor into cake pan and bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Turn over the pan on a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before removing from the pan. Now frost with frosting of your choice.
Suggestion: Cake goes well with a caramel frosting.
