Homemade sponge cake, very spongy and sweet homemade recipe

The homemade sponge cake is the ideal sponge cake if you are looking for one that leaves the house with a irresistible aroma of freshly baked cake. It is so versatile that we can flavor it with whatever we like best. On this occasion, we have used vanilla paste, but with lemon zest or cinnamon it is delicious.

If you are going to prepare a cake with this sponge cake as a base, I recommend you put a little syrup on it, since since it does not have oil or butter among its ingredients, it is a little drier for this type of preparation than other options that do contain fats. its ingredients.

This sponge cake lasts perfectly spongy for 4-5 days in an airtight container, so it is a perfect option to prepare it and have a delicious breakfast for several days.
