5-Ingredient Chocolate Sponge Cake Recipe: Perfect for Beginners

Light and fluffy, a sponge cake is usually made with egg whites, flour and sugar. This chocolate sponge cake recipe is made by beating the whole eggs together, which makes it easier for beginning bakers.

This sponge cake recipe is made in a 6-inch round cake pan. If your cake pan is larger, your cake will not be as tall. You will need to reduce the baking time. Serve this five-ingredient sponge cake as dessert or a sweet snack

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Servings: Makes 1 cake


Here's how to make it: 

  1. With an electric mixer, beat the eggs and the granulated sugar together until it's light and foamy. Add the vanilla and continue to beat.
  2. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the egg mixture. Using a whisk, gently stir until well combined.
  3. Pour the batter into a 6-inch round cake pan that's been lined with parchment paper. Drop the cake onto the counter to remove any air bubbles.
  4. Bake in a preheated 320-degree F oven for about 25 minutes or until the top is set. Remove and let it cool completely before removing from the pan.
