Ingredients
  

Bizcochos Borrachos (Sponge Cake)

  • 4 pieces Egg separated
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 3/4 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • sweetened whipped cream
  • almonds sliced
  • ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 1 Cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • orange zest
  • 3 tablespoons brandy

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350oF. Grease and flour the bottom of an 8 x 2-inch square or round pan.
  • In a bowl, beat the egg yolks with sugar until thick and light yellow in color. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold in the yolk mixture.
  • Combine flour and baking powder then sift over the batter. Carefully fold into the beaten egg mixture.
  • Pour into the pan and bake until cake springs back when lightly touched, about 20 minutes.
  • To make the syrup, combine the sugar, water, honey, cinnamon, and orange peel in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then let boil for a minute.
  • Remove from heat and take out the orange peel. Stir in brandy, rum, or liqueur. Cool.
  • Prick the baked cake with a toothpick all over. Pour the syrup over the cake and let stand so cake gets to absorb the syrup.
  • Cut into portions and plate. Before serving, top with whipped cream and almonds then dust with some ground cinnamon.

     
    TIP: For the kid-friendly version, skip the alcohol in the syrup then serve the cake topped with ice
    cream instead of cream.
