There are a few small tricks that is worth to stick to if we like to bake a high-rising sponge. We should definitely bolt the flour and not only once. We should do it only with the flour and then bolt it with the flour and the baking powder too. The egg white should never have egg yellow inside when we separate them because otherwise we cannot make a hard whip that we need. We should always add a pinch of salt to the egg white before we start to beat it. When we pour the sponge mix in the baking pot we should shake it with a fast movement so that the air can leave, and our sponge is not airy. We should never open the oven door during baking our sponge because otherwise it will not rise. We can either bake it in a cake form or a square pot. Anyways, we can create a great light-tasting holiday cake from this even for Easter. I have decorated my cake with strawberries but we can decorate it with some other fresh fruits too (berries mostly).

Instructions

  1. We prepare the sponge cake. We carefully separate one by one the egg white from the egg yellow. We whip the egg white to hard whip with a pinch of salt. We whip the egg yellow with the sugar, the vanilla and the lemon zest too. We add to the egg yellow whip the flour and the egg white whip spoon by spoon, one by one after each other. We turn them nice together softly. We pour the sponge mix into a baking pot that we pre-buttered and floured. We put it in the oven for approx. 30 min on 190 degrees. Afterwards we let it rest for min half an hour.
