Chocolate Genoise is base for many cakes. This is similar to sponge cake. I have adapted the recipe from Joy Of Baking

Main difference between Genoise and sponge is Genoise is less crumby,Hence easy to ice the cake. And while making genoise we will not separate the eggs while beating.and we add butter for genoise.
Both Sponge and genoise are light and easily absorbs the syrup and becomes moist.

I like to use Genoise, when used for icing as it is less crumby. But when I want to go for fat less cake or plain cake to eat I prefer sponge. You can click here to see how I used sponge cake while making black forest cake.

I used this Genoise for making my New Year Cake. Click for More details on How I did My New Year Cake :).
Make it, ice it, slice it and gulp it soon :)
