Passover Chocolate Sponge Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

WELL THIS WENT TOGETHER WELL, BUT, I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THE BUNDT PAN BUT A TUBE PAN, YOU KNOW AN ANGEL FOOD CAKE PAN WITH THE REMOVABLE BOTTOM, CAUSE I COULD NOT GET MINE OUT OF MY BUNDT PAN AND I GREASED AND FLOURED IT. THE CAKE TASTES GREAT THOUGH BUT NOW THAT IT IS IN PIECES WE WILL EAT IT WITH ICECREAM AND CHOCOLATE SAUCE IN A BOWL, NO PRETTY PIECES HERE. DEFINITELY WILL MAKE THIS AGAIN BUT IN THE "TUBE/ANGEL FOOD" PAN. I ADDED A SPINKLING OF INSTANT COFFEE POWDER TOO FOR A MORE MOCHA TASTE. BARBARA, IF YOU HAVE SUGGESTIONS FOR HOW TO GET IT OUT OF THE BUNDT PAN I WOULD APPRECIATE IT CAUSE IT WOULD LOOK PRETTY OUT OF THE DECORATIVE BUNDT PAN. GREAT CAKE, WITH A PERFECT SPONGE CAKE TEXTURE.

I am eating Paleo so I look for flourless things as well no refined sugars. I used unsweetened chocolate and 3/4 cup of honey instead of sugar. I baked it for the hour but I think that was too long for it was started to burn on the bottom. Although it says cook for 1 hour or until cake springs back....I didn't think I needed to check it 15 minutes before. So it was overcooked and a bit dry. According the review before mine...they had problems using a Bundt Pan. For me, it fell right out. Considering this cake had very little fat....just no stick spray on my Bundt pan worked great. I'd like to try this recipe again and see how fares with less cooking time.

Well I am a bit surprised that there is no butter, but I guess the oil was supposed to come from almonds. It is kinda dry and it was not easy to fold the egg whites in as the egg yolk+chocolate+ almond meal was very very dry drier than peanut butter consistency. I would put a little more sugar as well Maybe using almond meal/flour ( storebought) caused me to put more than intended. ( as the home ground one would naturally be more fluffier)
