Sponge cake

Sponge cakes are actually pretty easy and quick to make. You need: flour, butter, spices and baking powder. Ideally all ingredients should be at room temperature. If no eggs are used, I always add some apple cider vinegar to the batter. The combination of baking powder / baking soda and vinegar works wonders, namely many bubbles! This will make the cake super light and airy later. Therefore, after adding the vinegar, you should not stir the dough for too long.
