Dessert: Easy Sponge Cake (Biskvit) Recipe – Natasha’s Kitchen

I love this sponge cake recipe. It’s so easy and you can make hundreds of different cakes with this base. This is a classic European sponge cake (aka Genoise) and is used throughout Europe. Once you have this recipe down (which is truly simple and you’ll memorize it after a couple rounds), you’ll be baking cakes that taste like the finest bakery style cakes in the world.

Best recipe… I halved the quantity because I did not need more than one cake for chocolate fondue… I also added vanilla for flavor while beating the eggs… It came out wonderful! Will try the recipe again…

Ellena Eats ASMR says:

I just made this biskvit and I notice that it tastes similar of consistency to a lady finger. I was hoping it was going to be more along the lines of a base for Lamingtons, or Čupavice. Will be looking for a way to use this type of biskvit though, thanks!
