Genoise in Strawberry Vin Santo Sauce

Makes: 10 to 12 servings
Prep 1 hr Bake 350°F 22 mins
Genoise in Strawberry Vin Santo Sauce
  • 6  eggs
  •  Granulated sugar
  •  Cake flour or all-purpose flour
  • 3/4  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/3  cup  light-tasting or pure olive oil (do not use extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 1/3  cups  cake flour or 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  •  Strawberry Vin Santo Sauce
  •  Powdered sugar
  •  Fresh strawberries (optional)

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.
