Baking Basics

Whisking method

A true sponge contains no fat. The eggs and sugar are whisked together until thick and creamy, leaving a trail when the whisk is removed.

An electric mixer facilitates whisking but with hand whisking, placing the bowl over hot water helps to give a faster result.

Then gently fold in the flour with a metal spoon or spatula. Avoid opening the oven door during baking time.
