Sponge Vanilla Cake

Ingredients

  • 80 grs (4 oz) caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 80 grs (4 oz) Sieved self-raising flour

    Method


  • 1) Break eggs in a bowl, add sugar and whisk well until thick, creamy and almost white in colour. The mixture should leave a trail when the whisk is removed. This step is VERY IMPORTANT, if the mixture isn't whisked enough the cake won't work, it will come out rubbery.


  • 2) Lightly fold flour into mixture (best use a metal spoon)

  • 3) Pour into well-greased 18cm. (7in.) cake tin.

  • 4) Bake in moderate oven 180ºc, 350ºf, gas mark 4 for about 30 mins. (Avoid opening oven door during baking)

  • 5) When cool slice and spread with jam and cream. ( I added strawberries)

Tips

  • As this cake has no fat it is very important to beat the eggs and sugar really really well.
    Obviously it's easier to use an electric mixer. If you whisk by hand place the bowl over hot water to give a faster result.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
