Use this recipe to make Tiramisu Ice Cream Cake. To make our Watermelon Bombe, use a half batch of this recipe: Divide the batter between two 6-inch-round layer-cake pans, and bake for 35 minutes. Use one layer for the bombe, and freeze the second layer for later use.
This is my all time favorite recipe for a sponge cake. Super easy and works every time. I highly recommend using a simple syrup if you're using this recipe for a layered cake. This cake comes out a bit dry but the simple syrup adds the moisture back into the cake.

I used this sponge to make tiramisu, not the ice cream version from this site, but the traditional one. I find ladyfingers a bit bland.
This is a dry cake...it is supposed to be - hence the name "Sponge Cake". Sponge cakes are typically paired with a sauce or cream to soak up. They are similar to angel food cakes but contain the yokes for fat and protein.
This is a perfectly simple traditional vanilla sponge cake that absorbs up berry sauces or coffee liqueur very nicely!
This was very easy to make. The only problem i had was that I found it to be a little bit dry. I put it in convection bake for less time than the recipe called for (checking it often), so I don't think I overbaked it. Maybe next time I should add some milk to the batter to moisten it up.
