My first génoise ! YEAH !
It’s really silly but that took me decades to decide to make one. I was sure that sponge cake was very difficult to make without pro equipment and I don’t even have an electric egg beater.
I was wrong !
The shape is nice for a first try, I think. I didn’t even put paper in the mold. I only greased it with butter. No problem to get the cake out.
In addition as my kitchen scale is broken, I totally eyeballed ingredients.
1 egg (medium size)
3 tablespoons (very full) of flour
3 tbs of sugar (or vanilla sugar , or sugar + vanilla essence)
1 tbs of unsalted butter
Prepare the flour (sieve it). Put the butter in a cup. Break the egg in a metal bowl, add the sugar, beat.
-Bring a saucepan 2/3 full of water to boil, stop.
