cocoa sponge fingers

1 Lovely sponge finger, so yummy with a cup of tea or coffee !!

Here I added cocoa to suit my chocolate tooth and an unforgetable white and dark chocolate with salted butter caramel charlotte that you're going to discover in a few days (sometimes I'm mean !!) ....

Yields : 24

Here's what we need :

60g flour, 3 eggs, 90g sugar, 15g unsweetened cocoa powder, icing sugar.

Here's what we do :

sift the flour & cocoa powder.

Whisk egg yolks with 30g sugar until foamy & clear yellow.

Beat egg whites for 2/3 minutes then add remaining sugar & beat until stiff with nice peaks.

Mix egg whites & egg yolks together carefully.

Incorporate the flour/cocoa all at ones, don't overwork the batter !!

preheat your oven at 302 °F.

Use a piping bag to form sponge fingers on a pastry sheet covered with parchment.

Dust with icing sugar and bake for 18 minutes.
                                                                                                                              Relax, savour & share!

  1. I love your sponge fingers - they are so pretty and uniform. I made some last week for the first time, and they are all crooked thanks to my piping skills :-). But I hid them in tiramisu :-). Yours don't need to be hidden, they can proudly go on display around that gorgeous charlotte ;-)
