Ladyfinger Sponge (Biscuit Cuillère) is mostly known for the preparation of a Charlotte Cake. It has a very nice consistency and compared to other sponge recipes, it is, because of the additional egg yolks, less dry and still very airly and light.

The general secret to the successful preparation of any sponge is to understand the balance of creating volume and correctly incorporating the ingredients that deflate the batter.

Gradually adding the sugar allows the egg white to whip up to its full volume. Folding in the egg yolks and the sifted flour with as little strokes as possible avoids deflating the batter too much.
