Sunday Slow Bakers! Grappa-Soaked Mini Sponge Cakes

This is a lovely recipe, and seems very adaptable. I actually had mini bundt pans leftover from my Family Childcare days (we used to bake on Fridays so each child could take home a mini cake). But since I then discovered I'd run out of cooking spray, and couldn't cope with greasing all those little nooks I used my large bundt pan. The mixture filled it halfway, and baked in 46 minutes. It easily came out of the pan, and looked gorgeous. It was fun to paint with the grappa syrup!


Here's a slice, with a dollop of whipped cream sweetened with some of the syrup, which I also dribbled around. Delicious! The downside of using the large pan is that you get less of the booze-soaked, slightly crunchy outer layer! Next time I'm definitely going to use the small pans.

It looks very pretty as a whole cake - that sure would be easier. I do not enjoy trying to clean out a bundt pan (although I don't know why I complain about it because Paul normally does this!)

That looks so yummy. Hope it helped to get you motivated to working on your Developmentals.


I like the whole cake look; I thought of doing that with my bundt pan. Bundt cakes are a family joke since my dear, late Aunt Rose was convinced that her sherry wine cake recipe (from the back of the box) was a secret family recipe. Now this generation of brides gets a bundt pan and the "recipe" at their bridal shower.
