Strawberry Genoise with Whipped Cream

The genoise, a light, elegant sponge cake, is one of the building blocks of French baking, used as a base for both layer cakes and jelly rolls. The successful leavening of the cake depends solely on how much air is whipped into the eggs. Heating the sugar and whole eggs before whipping helps the eggs attain the maximum volume possible, although a slightly denser, still satisfying, version of the cake can be made without this step. Some genoises, such as this recipe, contain a little butter, which tenderizes the crumb.

Not worth the effort, taste is unimpressive

This requires considerable effort, especially the part where you hold the bowl over the water. I followed the recipe exactly as written and found the taste to be on the bland side. Will not make again.
Cons: Complicated, Taste
