Richard Blais on Iron Chef America

Did you catch Richard Blais acting as Cat Cora's sous chef for the second time this past weekend? As last time, he prepared a fast sponge cake using NO2 and a microwave. Want the recipe?

"The recipe is quite simple. 1/2 cup cake flour, 3 eggs, 5 tbsp sugar. Beat eggs and sugar. Fold in flour, fill siphon. 2 charge. Buttered coffee cup that's been slit a few times. Nuclear for 30-35 seconds on high power. Really butter the inside of the cup."

Voila - cake. In about 2 minutes.
