Beautiful Sponge Cake

It's quite easy to make a nice sponge cake when you have an electric mixer. The key to make smooth and even sponge cake is to be "Gentle". All you have to do is not to mix but "Fold in" gently after adding flour. Then, you'll have a gorgeous sponge to play with.

I am going to cut them in pieces and let them rest in the fridge for tomorrow's Lamingtons;)


Flour 90g
Sugar 90g
Egg 3
Butter 30g
Vanilla extract 1/2 tsp

1. Mix Sugar and egg with an electric mixer until it's fluffy and smooth.
2. Sift flour into 1, and fold in very gently.
3. Melt butter in a microwave.
4. Pour melted butter and vanilla extract into 2 and fold in gently.
5. Bake for 25 minutes in the pre-heated oven (160º).
