DIRECTIONS

1.

for the Lady Fingers Sponge Cake

1.

Preheat the oven to 375 °F with convection fan on. Prepare one large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spay and parchment paper.

2.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the egg yolks, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract. Using the whisk attachment, whip the yolks on medium high speed until they reach ribbon stage: thickened and pale in color, 3-5 minutes (see video for reference).

6 large eggs, separated

60 g granulated sugar, divided

2 tsp vanilla extract

3.

Transfer the egg yolk mixture to a large metal bowl, then thoroughly wash and dry the bowl.

4.

Add the egg white to the mixer bowl and begin whipping on medium speed. Once the egg whites are frothy, slowly pour the remaining sugar into the still whipping whites.

120 g granulated sugar, divided

5.

Once all of the sugar is incorporated, continue whipping on high speed until stiff peaks form (see video for reference).

6.

Add ⅓ of the egg white meringue into the whipped egg yolk mixture and fold until the resulting batter is mostly combined but still streaky. Add the remaining ⅔ of the meringue into the egg yolk mixture and fold to combine until, once again, streaky.

7.

Add the sifted flour and salt to the batter and fold until just combined with no streaks remaining.

170 g cake flour, sifted

½ tsp kosher salt

8.

Transfer the batter to a large piping bag fitted with a large round piping tip.

9.

Pipe long columns down the length of the prepared baking sheet, making sure not to leave any space between each column.

10.

Dust the surface of the batter with an even layer of powdered sugar.
