A perfect cake presentation relies on a perfect sponge, and here is how you can achieve such an ideal Rich Chocolate Sponge Cake using Eggs. Anything that is ‘rich’ is incomplete without oodles of butter, cream, curds, or any other dairy goodie. And, in this case, the special touch comes from the addition of ample butter, which gives the cake a pampering mouth-feel and luxuriant flavour.

Tips to make the perfect sponge cake

  1. Make sure you sift the flour well. This step is very important as it makes the cake light and airy. 
  2. Beating of the butter with an electric beater and then adding the sugar is important to make the cake fluffy.
  3. After adding the eggs make sure you add a tbsp of flour, as said in the recipe, as this prevents curdling of the batter.
  4. While adding the remaining flour to the batter, use the cut and fold method to retain the airation.
  5. After pouring the batter in the greased and dusted tin, put it to bake immediately in a pre-heated oven.
  6. Allow the sponge to cool completely and then serve then in wedges.

   Cake making is an art and the size of the tin is very imp, if you use a smaller one than the mentioned size it will create the problem you faced and also make sure the oven is pre-heated and baked at a correct temp and also bake in the middle rack.
