A Genoise Cake is a starter cake for making different types of French desserts, straightforward and elaborate creations. It is light and airy and a favorite of many bakers because of its elastic and dry texture. A Genoise Cake is very absorbent and holds its shape well. It is often served with delicious cream and widely use in other cuisines as well because of its versatility. The best way to serve it plain is with a simple dust with confectioner’s sugar or a layer or filling of fruits.
A Genoise recipe, in my opinion, is very simple compared to other recipes. There is no need to use other special utensils. Enjoy!
