A perfect cake presentation relies on a perfect sponge, and here is how you can achieve such an ideal Rich Chocolate Sponge Cake using Eggs. Anything that is ‘rich’ is incomplete without oodles of butter, cream, curds, or any other dairy goodie. And, in this case, the special touch comes from the addition of ample butter, which gives the cake a pampering mouth-feel and luxuriant flavour.
