Today Chef EK shares his VANILLA SPONGE RECIPE. You'll learn the secret to baking this perfect sponge in this video. The recipe is specific, as well as the technique!

1)Separate your egg whites and egg yolks

2)Use an Egg Beater to start whipping the egg whites

3) Slowly add in the sugar to make a fluffy French Meringue

Adding in the sugar too quickly will result in a liquid mix rather than a fluffy, buoyant one.

4)Add the Vanilla and continue to mix

5)Mix in the egg yolks one at a time and mix until completely combined

6)Add the Flour

7)Add the Oil and mix with a spatula

Once the flour is added only mix with a spatula or fold by hand, using an electric mixer will flatten the batter and prevent it from rising in the oven
