Easy Vanilla Sponge
Back to basics today with my quick Easy Vanilla Sponge recipe! I wanted to share one of my very basic cake recipes with you as it’s always important to have some classic recipes that you can use as a stepping off point for making ever more delicious and extravagant creations!
This sponge recipe is super simple to follow but it does have a special twist which makes it one of my favorites. I only use egg yolks, and not the egg whites (helpful hint – if you’re making meringues, this is a great recipe to use up the yolks!). This produces a beautiful gold cake, yellow and rich, with a slightly denser crumb than whole egg recipes.
Flavored simply with vanilla, it’s delicious on its own but can be adapted and decorated to make it your own!
