Hi Sbeec,

Thanks for your recipe. I have some questions: a)What kind of flour should I use? b) if it's only 4oz of flour for how many people this cake will be enough? c) should the butter and eggs be at room temperature?

Thank you friend!

Hi Sbeec,
Are you in England? I am just wondering something. I know that in England the recipes are made by the weight of the ingredients and not by cup measure the way they generally are in Canada and the U.S. However they are done this way in commercial bakeries in Canada. So when you measure your ingredients are you measuring these amounts on a scale?
Also wanted to say that there are two recipes for chocolate sponge cakes on www.baking911.com. One a sheet cake and the other a jellyroll type.

Hi
Sorry to say I am not from England but from a small country in Southeast . It is situated north of Singapore and south of Thailand it is known as Malaysia.

Over here we used the scale to measure our ingredients. But sometime I do use the cup to measure if the recipe call for it.

Will you be trying the Sponge Cake I posted?

Hi there. I will probably not try it until the new year. I just wanted to make sure about whether it was weighed or dry cup measured as this surely makes a big difference, haha! I do know that weighing is more accurate, but in North America, unless you are a commercial bakery, you do use the measuring cups and spoons and not a scale. So 4 ounces by weight and 4 ounces by cup makes a huge difference. Regardless, I have a baking scale, so I am set!
Thanks for sharing!
