Sponge Cake Roll

Image of the Sponge Cake Roll on Biancolievito
Here is a sponge cake characterized by an elastic structure ideal to be rolled up.
With this type of sponge cake, you can prepare delicious roll cakes filled with creams or jelly. I recommend gently soak it with Alchermes and fill it with a soft buttercream!
For an excellent result of this recipe, be very careful not to let the sponge cake dry out in the oven but to keep it pretty moist.
