Rhubarb and Vanilla Bean Sponge Recipe

Rhubarb and Vanilla Bean Sponge Recipe

Copper Spoon Cakery's Rhubarb and Vanilla Bean Sponge recipe is now available for you to bake at home! 


This sponge is light and fluffy, studded with sweet rhubarb and vanilla bean.
The use of sour cream in this cake means the sponge is moist, tender and rich.


Sour cream has a high fat content and doesn’t thin out the batter as milk or cream would. Not only that, but the acids in sour cream help to shorten and tenderise strands of gluten, which gives the sponge a beautiful texture.
