Sponge cake recipe balance guidelines

Best Tip to make the Sponge Cake fluffy
Butter and sugar are a key tip to spongy, smooth, and moisturize the cake together. Whisk butter and sugar for a long time to make the mixture light yellow and soft due to air intake. The process is popular as creaming.
Remember: If the butter or spread is too soft, it becomes oily and the resulting cake heavy and thick. If the butter is too cold, it takes too long to mix into the sugar and eggs and cause over-mixing, which means a rich cake.
