Hot Milk Sponge Cake I
I made this recipe as a part of an attempt to replicate a cake made at a local Italian bakery - A light, fluffy cake with fresh strawberry, peach, and whipped cream filling, and frosted with a not-sickly-sweet frosting (I used homemade whipped cream). I doubled the recipe to have enough to make two layers about 1 1/2 - 2 inches thick.
While this cake was tasty, it did not quite fulfill my "light and fluffy" hopes. If I were to make this again, I think think I would separate the eggs from the yolks and maybe add a little lemon zest for a "brighter" flavor. Also, this cake took about 40 minutes to bake in a convection oven.
