Coffee and walnuts sponge cake

Hi,

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.

Ingredients:

  • 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 🙂

Sweet potato sponge cake

Hello,

In Catalonia is very typical to see small stands on the street selling roasted chestnuts and sweet potatos when Halloween it’s getting close. In fact Halloween for us in the “chestnut day” and it is very typical to eat roasted chestnuts often also with sweet potatoes and with a special sweet wine called Moscatel (Muscat). But as long as I really like sweet potatos, I like to try another ways to eat them besides roasted. So I experimented time ago trying to use the sweet potato in a sponge cake with really nice results, and I come to you today with this recipe. And perhaps you can replace sweet potato with pumpkin, for a halloween sweet recipe 🙂

Ingredients:

In a big bowl let’s add 350 gr of flour, passed through a colander, one baking powder envelope, 200 gr of sugar, 100 gr of olive oil or vegetable oil, 200 gr of milk, 4 eggs, grate some lemon skin (try to grate only the yellow part, as the white one is bitter) and finally peel a sweet potato, grate it and add to the bowl.

Now whisk everything for some minutes until it’s well combined.

Use a bit of butter to grease the mold you will use to bake the sponge cake. Empty the bowl in the mold and cook in the oven at 350 F (180 C) for 30 minutes, let cold and it’s ready to eat.
