Great sponge recipe and only uses one egg.

Top Review by HeatherFeather

Considering that this recipe has much less fat than most cake recipes, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty this turned out. The texture is really lovely - soft and puffy. It is not an overly sweet cake, and the chocolate flavor is not very pronounced. Still, this was incredibly simple to prepare and I will certainly be making this again whenever I need a quick snack cake. This cooked very quickly - I recommend checking for doneness early as mine was already just a tiny bit too dark right at 30 minutes.
