Today I’ll show you how to make a simple but yet very moist and fluffy sponge cake you can use in your own recipes. At the end of this video, there are 2 video links that will bring you to the 2nd and 3rd video in this series. After making the sponge cake, I’ll be making a strawberry puree, and in the final video (3rd ) we will be making a stunning strawberry shortcake, a French inspired version called a torte fraisier. This was one of my favourite cakes to make while in pastry school a long time ago.
Bake time on this cake was approx 45 minutes. Check with a wooden skewer around the 30 to 40 minute mark in your oven to see if it is done. Time will vary depending on the size of springform pan you use.
