Egg Yolk Sponge Cake is a super light and fluffy sponge relying on egg yolks as the base which delivers a rich and fluffy sponge. Filled with whipped cream and jam, dusted with icing sugar and you have a classic sponge cake for dessert, morning tea or just for fun.
I discovered a recipe for egg yolk sponge cake on Nigella Lawson’s community site. I had mad a pavlova for Christmas and had egg yolks left over. I scoured the internet for recipes that only required egg yolks and stumbled across this recipe. I have never been a huge a fan of sponge – I just don’t see the point in them – but a sponge with just egg yolks? This was far too intriguing not to make.
