      In my haste to get a cake baked in time for my children's snack, I failed to read and reread the directions carefully. After mixing in the eggs, oil and sugar AND MILK, I then proceeded to sifting flour, salt and baking powder only to realize that there was no mention of what to do with the milk!! Try as I could, the batter would not get light and fluffy. Since it was too late to rectify, I went ahead and baked the liquid batter anyway. The cake did rise a little, but it tasted wet and eggy. The taste was actually very nice, so I guess if this had been made correctly, ( maybe the milk need to be added in alternately with the flour to the egg mixture?), it would have resulted in an actual fluffy sponge cake. I would also like to ask whether the 120 ml of warm water mixed with the chocolate takes the place of the milk? I will try making this again because my daughter did like the taste of this cake. Thank you for posting.

      This recipe was OK, I have not heard of adding the whole egg to a sponge cake, just the maybe that had something to do with the eggy texture. I added chocolate whipped cream and strawberries to mine, so it distracted me from the 'eggy-ness' of the cake. Needs some tweeking!
