Does anyone have a good vanilla sponge and chocolate sponge cake recipe? I have tried a few and they aren't coming out moist. I know it's suppose to be a dense cake. Any suggestions and recipes would really be grateful. TIA.

I don't think a sponge cake would be dense. It shld be light.

I make the Baking with Julia (Childs) book genoise. Maybe you do have the right recipe. You have to be careful when you mix it, though, so that you don't deflate the foam.

I don't think they're that moist. They're supposed to be elastic and dry, and light. "Sponge" so that it can absorb the flavored syrups that this type of cake is usually brushed with.


Regular genoise and ladyfingers:
