Home- made Sponge Cake

Sometimes I crave for cake…any kind…considering my infamous sweet tooth
! One of these cravings hit me out of the blue a couple of days back and so out came the recipe for cake…:) Baking isn't really that hard as long as you stick to measurements.

You will need:

175 gms (1 Cup)All purpose flour (Maida)
175 gms Butter (1 1/2 sticks) (at room temperature)
200 gms Powdered Sugar (1 1/4 cups) (Confectioner’s sugar)
1 tsp Vanilla extract
3 Eggs (at room temp)
1 ¾ tsp Baking powder

  • Preheat oven to 350 F(180 C)
  • Sieve the flour with the baking powder thrice to make sure they are blended well.
  • Beat the eggs with an electric beater separately with Vanilla extract to a stiff froth.
  • Cream the butter to a smooth shiny consistency using an electric beater. Now add the powdered sugar little at a time and beatto combine sugar into the butter.
  • Add the beaten eggs into the butter mixture little at a time and beat to form a smooth mixture. Scoop the sides of the bowl occasionally to make sure all the ingredients are blended well.
  • Pour into a greased baking pan (Loaf pan or a regular 8x8 pan) and bake for 25-30 mins till a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  • Let cool before slicing. Store in an air tight container away from moisture.

I like the slightly crunchy exterior and hence bake it an extra 3-4 minutes so that the cake browns up.

‘A bite of heaven in every slice’ is what I would like to call it!:)

Top with cut berries to make a light dessert or bite on a plain slice...delicious!!
