  6. do they taste like normal sponge cakes?

    1. It taste like 鸡蛋糕to me but not so bad for a change.

  7. Hi Chris, since I have overcome the fear of making sponge cake lately, I am going to give this a try. Sound and look delicious.

    1. I have done any sponge cake for a while. Ya, give this a try.

  8. If I remember correctly from Alex Goh's books, French style sponge cake means egg whites and egg yolks beat separately (like chiffon cake method), while traditional sponge cake is whole egg beat together. :)

    Your sponge is very soft!!

  9. Hi Chris, Your cake looks so soft and spongy! Perfect texture!
