Nutritional values

The golden yellow corn semolina gives this sponge cake a beautiful color and at the same time provides valuable vegetable protein and adds very low fat content.

If you pay attention to your blood fat values and therefore want to avoid animal fats, you can use a high-quality vegetable margarine suitable for baking (not half-fat margarine!) instead of yogurt butter.

This looks great! Quick question: How can I make it softer?
Cyndy from EAT SMARTER's picture
Thanks for your question. This cake should be pretty soft when it's done baking. If not, perhaps cut back on the baking time by 4-5 minutes.
