Genoise, or French sponge cake, differs from regular sponge cake because it's made with butter, which makes it more tender and flavorful.

    Although this recipe is very flavorful (I used extra vanilla), it did not resemble a true genoise in any way. It was way too heavy and dense. I'm surprised because I've gotten good results with Martha Stewart's recipes but this was an epic fail. Ended up baking a Gateau Savoy--much lighter!

    In classical p√Ętisserie, Genoise is often baked without butter, and it is still commonly made in European bake shops with only eggs, sugar, and flour.
