Classic Genoise (Sponge Cake)


Leaps and bounds, nava-k has bounced back with a sweet treat (Rose Sago Gula Melaka & Fried Pineapple Rolls). Obviously, I must feel good right? I should because its been quite an effort in baking this Classic Genoise/Sponge Cake. Soft, spongy, crumbly and a melting moment, oh-boy, I did it (Mandarin Orange Cake, Oats Raisin Cookies, Milo Cake & Butter Cake). Mind you, sometimes patience is not my virtue, especially when my mind is filled with hundred and one things. On this day, I just felt like emptying my emotional bag by baking. I sure, yes, inserted an extra patience memory drive, and got down on it. Egg and sugar whisked, flour patiently folded in and I patiently waited for the waffling whiff of this cake. I sure did. Whiff scented my kitchen, out came this Classi Genoise/Sponge Cake. The top secret I must tell you, anyway not really a secret to those who bake at Masterchef level, but for those like me, the crucial technic is folding the flour. Do not over-fold or rush through (Orange Cheesecake, Cherry Vanilla Rice Pudding & Chocolate Rum Tart).
Ingredients
3 eggs (room temperature)
80g caster sugar
40g melted butter
80g cake flour
20g corn flour

Method
Create a double boiler and whisk eggs and sugar till slightly warm and foamy.
Remove from heat and whisk to "ribbon stage" (more at Strawberry Short Cake).
(Drop and see a line).
Sift cake flour and corn flour over the batter and carefully fold in.
(No lumps, be gentle and fold from bottom up).
Stream warm melted butter and fold in.
(Be careful not to over fold)
Tip mixture into a buttered baking pan.
Bake at 16C for about 20-25 minutess/ till cake is cooked.
