This is one of the best sponges I have tasted.
The texture and taste is so awesome you can
serve it plain without any adornment.
Your choice, to ice the cake or serve it with
custard preferably coffee or chocolate custard.
This cake is baked in a water bath,and the
preparation is totally different compared to
the normal sponge.
