The 7-Egg Sponge Cake

sponge cake

For those of us who grew up with recipes that do not exist, here’s one recipe that made me question the egg count.

To clarify, I’m not prejudice about the odd egg count, but I swear that this cake started with twelve eggs.

But I got a little suspicious. Could this have once been an eight-egg sponge cake, and then one egg fell or was miscounted? Or perhaps it was originally a six-egg sponge cake, and one egg was left over and then added for good luck? Understanding the ideology of the misfit school of no recipes would lead one to believe that a broken telephone or a misinterpretation was the real reason behind the seven-egg sponge cake.

At any rate, the cake was fantastic!
