Black Forest Cake

Happy Valentine's Day!
I don't usually celebrate Valentine's day as me and my husband are always busy.
This year he is busy as usual but I thought I make him his favourite Black Forest cake as a gift.
It's always difficult to think what presents to buy him, but as a cake maker I can't think of anything but simply a lovely cream cake.
 
I have found this chocolate sponge recipe from a Taiwanese cookery show on you tube,
unfortunately this video have been taken off but the link still has the recipe in Chinese, so click here for the recipe and method in Chinese.
I am surprised how light this sponge is it actually springs back when you squeeze it!
