It absorbs every little smile that comes out in each bite. The Sponge Cake Day makes a notable foodie holiday for everyone who lives to have a piece of it.
Sponge cake is cake that you get from the mixture of an egg foam along with other ingredients. It is what gives the sponge cake its foamy and spongy appearance. Often made with flour, sugar and eggs incorporated with lots of air, blended properly and proportionately, create the natural lift on the sponge cake. Baking powder is rarely used for a nice lift since the air provides some good natural leavening for the cake. Sponge cakes are made into lots of varieties, evidenced by its popularity in an international setting. Each country, culture, and region, make their own sponge cake varieties, just the way they want it. This is probably the reason why it is considered a cake for all seasons.
