Coffee Sponge Cake Recipe

Coffee Sponge Cake
Servings: 12

Original recipe by Elinor Klivans. A variatian of hot milk sponge cake. I will be using this recipe to make a 'tiramisu' layered torte. If you want a higher cake (or 2 layers without slicing), double the recipe. To make a layered cake, it's best to brush with syrup before filling/frosting to prevent a dry cake. (Recipe makes one 9" round cake.)
