Butter-Enriched Sponge Cake

Added by: on Apr 19th, 2011
This cake is sometimes used instead of hot milk sponge cake to make rolled cakes because it has a rich buttery flavor and a finer crumb. It’s also flexible and rolls easily. The oven temperature is higher for sheet cakes than it is for layer cakes, because a higher temperature ensures that the .. more >

Directions:

1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line two 13 by 17-inch sheet pans with parchment paper.

2

In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar (if using) on medium-high speed for about 2 minutes, or until medium peaks form. Add 3/4 cup of the granulated sugar in a stream, and beat on high for 1 minute longer, or until stiff peaks form.

3

While the egg whites are beating, in a bowl large enough to fold together the finished cake batter, whisk the egg yolks with the rest of the granulated sugar for about 1 minute, until they are slightly pale.

4

With a rubber spatula, begin folding together the egg white and yolk mixtures. Place one-quarter of the mixture in a small bowl and fold in the melted butter.

5

Fold the butter mixture back into the egg mixture while sifting over the flour, about one-quarter at a time. Alternate between adding the flour-about one-fourth at a time-and folding until the flour is no longer visible.

6

With an offset spatula, spread the batter evenly in the prepared pans.

7

Use your thumb to make moats around the cakes to keep the batter from sticking to the sides of the pans. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until the tops of the cakes are firm to the touch. If the cakes seem to be cooking unevenly after 6 minutes, rotate the pans.

8

While the cakes are baking, sprinkle 2 sheets of parchment paper at least as large as the sheet pans with confectioners' sugar. Remove the cakes from the oven and flip out the cakes onto the sheets of prepared parchment paper by setting the cakes right next to the parchment.

Immediately peel away the cooked parchment paper from the bottoms of the cakes.

Let cool, then trim off any dried-out edges.

Cooks' note:
Folding with Flour:
In an ideal world, we'd all have three arms so that we could fold together beaten mixtures while sprinkling over dry ingredients such as flour or sugar. Unless you have a friend who will sift over the dry ingredients while you fold, work in stages by sifting over about one-fourth of the dry ingredients, folding completely, sifting over another fourth, folding again, and so on until all of the flour or sugar has been added.

This sponge cake has all the flavor and texture of genoise, but none of the dryness that genoise so often has. It is made just like a classic genoise, except that hot milk or cream and melted butter are folded into the beaten eggs at the same time as the flour, imparting extra moistness that makes it perfect for rolling. When baked in a 15 by 17-inch sheet pan, this moist cake is only about 3/8 ..

In most recipes for chocolate sponge cake, some of the flour is simply replaced with cocoa powder. The result is rather tame and a bit dry. The method shown here is similar, but the resulting cake is moister than a classic genoise and has a deep chocolate flavor. Bittersweet chocolate is melted with water, then the mixture is stirred until smooth and folded with beaten whole eggs, in the same ..
