A classic, deliciously moist and perfectly trimmed dark chocolate sponge cake. That’s what you can expect from this easy chocolate sponge cake recipe. Based on dark chocolate with a two-drop fluidity – check the packaging for the 💧💧 symbol – this recipe yields a denser sponge, with a more solid texture and an intense chocolate taste. In short, a tasty base for many cakes and entremets.
