Obstkuchen Base - Chocolate Sponge Cake

The is one kind of base that can be used for an Obstkuchen (Fruit topped cake).

1/4 cup All-Purpose Flour
2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup Cornstarch
3 Eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 package of Vanilla Sugar 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt

Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

Prepare a Springform pan (26 cm size) by slightly greasing the bottom. Cut a pice of parchment paper to fit the bottom of the pan. Place the parchment paper in the pan - the grease will hold it in place. Slightly grease the sides of the pan as well.
In a large mixing bowl, add eggs. Mix with a mixer on high. Gradually add sugar and vanilla sugar. Continue mixing until the eggs have doubled in volume and lightened in color - about 5 minutes.

Sift flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and baking powder into a bowl.

Add about 1/4 of the flour mixture into the beaten eggs and gently fold in. When this flour has been incorporated into the egg mixure, add another 1/4 flour mixture and repeat until all the flour has been absorbed into the egg mixture.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick poked into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Remove cake from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan.
