Fundamental: Microwave Sponge Cake

Recipe by François Galtier



Slowly heat cocoa butter with sugar and cream, then pour onto the chocolate to make a ganache. Add egg white, mix thoroughly and finish the mixture with flour and the baking powder. Fill a siphon, close, add two pressurised gas capsules and shake well. Fill half of a paper cup with the mixture and heat for approximately 35 seconds in the microwave at the highest setting. Store directly upside down after baking.
