Why does my sponge cake smell like eggs?

Why does my sponge cake smell like eggs? The eggy smell is a common problem for cake recipes (which means, factual, all the way down). But the problem isn’t with the eggs, it’s with the sponge cake itself. It seems that when you bake a lot of cakes, a lot of them sponge, you get a lot of “egg smell” complaints.
I believe my key problem is with the baking powder. After all, every sponge cake has its fair share of eggs, and every single cake recipe has its own “egg smell”. But I couldn’t help but notice that the white on the cake flour didn’t look eggy to me, until I tried mixing it with a fork. Why would I use that method? Because I am a sponge chef, and the reason I use butter is so that I can use some of the butter’s fat for baking. Plus, it gives the mixture a slightly crispy texture, which I love. I can’t believe I have to say this, but the world is waiting for you
Since getting a new knife I have used a pan on the counter to get a less eggy feel. But the dishes I has tried have never been so eggy! It came out too heavy and burnt too much. I have always bought silverware to replace old ones, and this is the first dish I have tried that does not have an egg in it. It is slightly floury and flaky, so not suitable for eating or drinking. I will try again next week.
Hi again, you are very understanding. I have always bought silverware to replace old ones, and this is the first dish I have tried that does not have an egg in it.
