Molly cake – whipped cream sponge cake

Scorrere verso il basso

Today with this whipped cream molly cake I would like to welcome you to my new section dedicated to basic baking and pastry recipes. This type of cake is a very soft and easy to prepare sponge cake that use whipped cream in the batter. The idea comes from the brilliant mind of a famous cake designer Eleonora Coppini.

Soft and delicate, this cake is almost entirely flat and does not crumble. It is perfect to be stuffed and decorated with different types of creams or to be coated with fondant. I have been using it for a long time for my stuffed cakes such as Molly cake with berries and white chocolate and yogurt cream. If you are looking for a soft cake that is easy to prepare and it is made without butter and without oil, and that you can use as a base for a birthday cake, in my opinion it is just perfect for you.
