Coffee and walnuts sponge cake


Some weeks ago while visiting a FNAC store I saw a book (Saved by cake) and just take a look on it, I opened it randomly and found a title which caught my eyes on “Coffee and walnuts sponge cake”, I did not read the recipe just try to cook one which can fit on the title, and this is the result.


  • 3 eggs
  • 200 gr sugar
  • 80 gr coffee
  • 120 gr condensated milk
  • 50 gr olive oil (or 100 gr melted butter)
  • Lemon zest
  • 350 gr flour
  • Baking powder
  • 100-150 gr walnuts

Hi, this is special way to prepare sponge cake, it’s a really simple recipe and delicious.

Let’s start adding 3 eggs on a bowl, also add 200 gr of sugar, a mix of 80 gr of expresso coffee, 120g of condensated milk, and 50 gr of olive oil (or 100 gr melted butter). Whisk it until well mixed. Then add lemon zest and 350 gr of flour with baking powder (about 16 gr), add the flour on 3-4 batches passing it through a colander, on each batch whisk it well until everything is well combined. Finally add 100-150 gr of walnuts and mix uniformly.

To bake it brush a mold with a bit of olive oil or butter, the base and the walls. Put the sponge cake dough on the mold, and let rest while the oven heat to 350º F (180ºC) then bake the sponge cake for 30 minutes, let cold and it’s ready to eat.

As you can see a super easy recipe, and it worths to taste it 🙂
