Genoise in Strawberry Vin Santo Sauce
- Allow eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease bottom and side of a 9-inch springform pan. Line bottom with parchment paper; grease paper. Sprinkle bottom and side of pan with granulated sugar; sprinkle with flour. Set pan aside.
- In an extra-large bowl combine eggs and the 3/4 cup granulated sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed for 15 minutes. With mixer running, gradually add oil in a thin, steady stream (this should take about 2 minutes). Immediately turn off mixer after all oil has been added. Sift the 1-1/3 cups cake flour over egg mixture; fold in gently.
- Pour batter into prepared pan, spreading evenly. Place springform pan on a baking sheet. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
- To serve, remove cake from pan; remove parchment paper. Cut cake into 10-12 wedges. Spoon Strawberry Vin Santo Sauce onto 10 to 12 dessert plates. Place cake wedges on top of sauce. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar and, if desired, garnish with strawberries.
