Gertbysea's Consultant's No-Fail Sponge
« on: April 08, 2010, 11:10:37 am »

I just found this recipe from  my consultant and remember making it last year. I am not a cake baker so was dubious but I do remember that it worked for me.

4 large eggs room temp separated
125 gms raw sugar
125 gms corn flour

Pre heat oven 180 degrees
Place raw sugar into *: mill for 6 seconds on Speed 9 and set aside
Attach butterfly and place egg whites into  *: whisk  4-6 minutes on speed 4
Add sugar through hole in lid and whisk for 2 minutes  speed 4
Add egg yolks and whisk for 2 minutes on speed 4
Add cornflour gradually  through hole in lid over 1 minute on speed 1-2
Remove butterfly and continue folding in cornflour with spatula assistance  through lid for 30 seconds  on speed 1

Pour batter ihnto greased 24 cm spring form pan and bake for 25-35 minutes until golden brown.

My consultans calls this her never fail recipe.


I'd be interested to now from you bakes if this is really a never fail recipe.

OK, I'm up for it. Will try today and report back....
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Was planning on making this today, but our water is off while the Water Corp are doing something in town. Maybe later in the week.
