Baking a cake with DS and decides to melt the butter to liquid state before mixing in with the other ingredients. It is in the vine now and looking strange! Does anyone else melt butter when baking cakes?

he might get away with it if it was the all in one method with baking powder, but i'd expect it to be denser than a normal sponge.

Genoese sponge is made with melted butter tho. Perhaps that was what he was making?

You would add melted butter to a genoise, but a traditional sponge is made using the creaming method. I think you're going to end up with a weird cake.

Great, I might try it next time I make cakes then. Sounds a lot easier.
