Step by step recipe

1 Biscuit de Savoie sponge cake : Photo of step #1Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).

3 Biscuit de Savoie sponge cake : Photo of step #3Put 3 eggs and 100 g caster sugar into a food mixer bowl. 3 min.
4 Biscuit de Savoie sponge cake : Photo of step #4Beat on high speed until the mixture is light like a mousse. 5 min.
5 Biscuit de Savoie sponge cake : Photo of step #5Sieve the flour and potato flour into the bowl. 3 min.
6 Biscuit de Savoie sponge cake : Photo of step #6Gently fold in the flour, just until it is incorporated into the frothy egg mixture.

This is the tricky part of the recipe. This needs to be done rapidly but gently to keep as much air as possible in the mixture. It is best to lean the bowl over on its side and use a soft spatula to lift and turn the mixture.
