Chocolate Sponge Cake

Recipe by jas kaur

This cake is delicious. It's not a dark chocolate cake, but it's amazingly moist n superb tasting . It is perfect for using as a base for black forest cakes and I use it extensively for trifle puddings too. Recipe courtesy

Top Review by Baby Kato

I don't know what went wrong jas kaur. I made this cake for my birthday and was disappointed by the texture of the cake. The frosting was lovely, rich, thick and decadent. This lovely subtle chocolate cake had great flavor, but was very dry, I cooked it for only 25 minutes. Served with strawberry cheesecake ice cream. Thank you for sharing your recipe, I will try this again and cook it for 20 minutes only next time.
