August 23: National Sponge Cake Day

August 23, 2010

August 23 is National Spongecake Day. I love spongecake. It is so soft and spongy. I like spongecake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream on it. I like spongecake with a drizzle of melted chocolate on it. I love spongecakes all by themselves with nothing on them.

The airy, light delight of a sponge cake dessert holds nearly universal appeal. You might enjoy it in madeleines, ladyfingers, or layered with a variety of fillings.

Light and airy, sponge cake is the perfect dessert for a hot summer night. Though it typically only contains the basic ingredients of eggs, sugar, and flour, the key to making the perfect sponge cake is to beat the batter thoroughly to create volume.

After it has been cooked in the oven but before it has cooled, sponge cake is very flexible. This allows the creation of rolled cakes such as the Swiss roll or other variations on the typical sponge cake. The Victoria Sponge Cake which contains jam between two sponge cakes, was named after Queen Victoria who enjoyed having a slice with her afternoon tea.

Bake one today and enjoy National Sponge Cake Day!

Not to be confused with National Spongebob Squarepants Day.

National Brownies At Brunch Month

August 5, 2010

Hold the phone. Hold everything. Did you know that August is National Brownies at Brunch Month?

The brownie, one of America’s favorite baked treats, was born in the U.S.A.—we just aren’t quite sure where—although evidence points to New England in the first few years of the 20th century. Although cake-like and baked in a cake pan, the brownie is classified as a bar cookie rather than a cake. There are thousands of recipes, both “cake” types and “fudge” types. Either is perfectly correct—and delicious.

July 30: National Cheesecake Day

July 30, 2010

National Cheesecake Day is an unofficial holiday which comes annually on July 30th. The observance, which is part of a surprisingly large tradition of food holidays, has not been officially endorsed by any presidents, and does not have any congressional records to solidify its claim. but this certainly does not stop thousands and maybe even millions of people from across the country from celebrating the decidedly delicious holiday.

There certainly is no reason that cheesecake should not have its own holiday. Records of cheesecake date as far back as 770 BC, when the dessert, or something like it at least, was served to Olympic athletes.

Today, it seems as if everyone has their own take on how cheesecake should be baked. There are many European, Latin American, Asian and, of course, American variations on how the dessert is baked and served.
