Cocoa sponge

  • Callebaut® CHOCOLATE ACADEMY™ centre Belgium -

Compared to dark chocolate sponge, this recipe made with Callebaut cocoa powder yields a deliciously moist, yet lighter and fluffier sponge. It has a powerful cocoa taste, an intense colour and a lighter, airy texture. Just like the chocolate sponge, this cocoa sponge is great to use as pastry base or to insert in pastries and cakes.
