Chocolate Genoise

A génoise cake (Genoese cake or Genovese cake) is an Italian sponge cake named after the city of Genoa and closely associated with Italian and French cuisine that does not use any chemical leavening, instead using air suspended in the batter during mixing to give volume to the cake. Génoise is not the same thing as pain de Gênes, which is an almond cake; however, Génoise is very close in composition and basic use to pan di Spagna ("Spanish bread"), an Italian sponge cake.
