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.

Can we replace baking powder by baking soda, if yes please let me know the quantity to be put. Thanks

Tarla Dalal    Hi Ramesh, Baking powder is used for the fluffiness so please do not replace it. Baking soda is used for softness but here we have used eggs for softness
