Whenever I’m in a hurry and crave for something sweet and chocolatey I turn to my mother’s chocolate sponge cake recipe, although I’ve changed it a little bit for my taste.

You can add a lot of things to the mixture: almonds, nuts, dried fruits, chocolate chips and you can bake it in a round pan and transform it in a cake by adding your favourite cream.

So here are my pictures and below you’ll find the recipe:

Ingredients
  1. 6 eggs, separated, at room temperature
  2. 200 g flour
  3. 130 g granulated sugar
  4. 1 tsp baking powder
  5. 2 tbsp cocoa powder (or more if you want a very chocolatey taste)
  6. 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  7. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  8. a pinch of salt
  9. walnuts/ almonds/ cranberries/ raisins (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 170 C degrees.
  2. Coat 2 cake pans with foil and set aside.
  3. In a large bawl add the egg whites, salt and sugar and mix well, at high speed, until you obtain a stiff and glossy meringue (for about 10 minutes).
  4. Add to the mixture the yolks and the oil and fold it in with a spatula in order to maintain the airy composition.
  5. Incorporate the baking powder in the flour and add it to the meringue mixture one spoon at a time.
  6. Divide the batter in half (or depending on how chocolatey you want your sponge cake to be) and add the cocoa powder to one half.
  7. Split the batters between the 2 cake pans and insert them in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.
  8. I like to serve it with a cup of hot milk aside.
