Chocolate sponge cake is a beloved dessert that delights the taste buds with its rich and indulgent flavor. This delectable treat is characterized by its soft, airy texture, achieved through the use of eggs and baking powder in the batter.


5 eggs
2 cups of sugar
2 cups of wheat flour
1/2 cup 50% cocoa chocolate powder
1 cup of hot milk
1 tablespoon baking powder


Beat the whole eggs with the sugar until they triple in volume.  Dissolve the chocolate in the hot milk and, without stopping beating, add it to the eggs beaten with sugar.  Beat for another 3 minutes. 

Using a spatula, gradually add the sifted wheat flour and yeast.  Just line the bottom of the pan with baking paper or paper towel, you don’t need to grease it if you do it this way. 

You should not grease the sides of the pan, so the cake adheres and rises evenly.  To unmold, just use a knife and it comes out perfectly. 

The dough should be halfway up the pan.  I used this in a 25 cm diameter mold, 7 cm high.
