  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and egg yolks using an electric mixer. Add sugar, and beat until thick and pale, about 10 minutes. If you have a stand mixer, use the whisk attachment. Sift the flour and baking powder into the egg mixture, and fold in by hand along with the milk. Stir just until the batter is mixed, then fold in the melted butter until smooth. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. When finished, invert the cake pan onto a sheet of waxed paper, and cool completely. This will give you nice even petits fours.
  4. Cut the cooled cake into small squares, rectangles or triangles, and arrange the pieces in rows on a wire rack or glazing screen with plenty of space between rows. Set the rack over a shallow pan or waxed paper to catch the drips.
  5. Spoon or pour warmed petit four icing over the small cakes. The drippings may be scraped off of the pan or paper, and reheated for use again. Allow the petits fours to set until completely dry. Lift the cakes from the rack with a metal spatula, and trim the bottom edges with a sharp knife. Set into small muffin papers for easy handling. Decorate as desired.

This recipie was AMAZING! No other word for it!

The cake lacks a flavoring (adding good vanilla helps, I mixed it in with the milk) and is VERY light and crumbly so I didn't find it suitable for my petit fours.

I'm eager to try this, but I would like to say after reading the reviews that a sponge cake is not meant to be very "tasty" by itself, you should soak it with simple syrup and flavorings when yo...

I think the recipe should call for beating the egg whites separately and then folding it in. That would make the texture better. The cake itself had large holes and not good for petit four icing...

I tried this recipe twice, and both times it came out terrible. There was no flavor to it, so I did add vanilla, and quite a bit, but there was still no flavor. Also, it was very hard to get the...

The consistency of this cake was great...but I think it tastes like a sugar cookie. No real flavoring, just sugar. Maybe less sugar and some sort of extract?? I'm not sure. I will try it aga...

This is a great recipe. Sponge cake for the most part doesn't have much flavor. But the great thing about it is you can add to it. Whether it is chocolate, or minced lemon zest. This recipe came...

It was so so, not a recipe I would repeat; not a winner in my book. The cake was too heavy and had no favor.
