Lemon Sponge Cake Recipe

It was my birthday recently, so hubby and I decided to do some baking videos! We're going to do a three-part video on making my birthday cake, starting with the sponge! For this cake we basically used Julia Child's sponge cake recipe (which is similar to a genoise), but replaced the orange with lemon. The trick here is to make sure you don't over-mix. This is intended to be a light and fluffy cake, and if you mix it too much and get too much gluten formation, it will end up with a much denser texture. The lemon came through beautifully, and the was light and moist, and held up very well to the raspberry jam and raspberry mousse we filled it with.

Next week will be a video on the lemon Swiss buttercream we used to frost it!
