Easy chocolate sponge recipe

Making fluffy chocolate sponge cake is one of the easiest dessert recipes available. Any cake in general is easy to prepare. I used to make them when I was a child.

The homemade chocolate cake is one of the most traditional desserts in homes in Spain and Latin America. It is ideal to eat it accompanied by a glass of milk or a cup of hot chocolate . If you put a layer of icing or cream on it, you can turn it into a impromptu birthday cake for emergencies.

You can also accompany it with a cup of coffee and use it as breakfast. Although I am a faithful defender that in the mornings you have to eat full. But if you are one of those people who do not have time in the morning, a piece of good chocolate sponge is preferable to nothing.
