Method of cooking

Combine eggs with sugar. Put the bowl on a water bath. The mixture should heat up with the help of the steam from the boiling water.

Start whipping eggs with sugar mixture on a water bath until the sugar dissolves. The mixture should heat up to 50°C.

Remove the bowl from the water bath and continue whipping at maximum mixer speed. The egg-sugar mixture should be stable: if you run your finger over the surface, the mark has to remain there.

Add flour and cocoa. Carefully mix with a whisk or a silicone spatula.

Pour the mixture on a baking tray 30/40, lined with baking parchment. Level with a spatula.

Bake at 180°C for 15-20 minutes.

Take out the sponge cake, turn it over onto the baking parchment, remove the parchment on which the cake was baked. While still hot, roll the cake into a roll and leave to cool.
