This is a gorgeous easy sponge recipe that a friend gave me and it takes minutes to make. I baked this over the long weekend to take to a friend we were visiting who has just had a new baby. I am in baking mode at the moment so bear with me, the next few posts will be some quick and easy Indian savoury bites, onion bhajis and the like, so watch this space.
For this very lovely sponge, I used two 20 cm cake tins.
For each sponge -;
1 Cup Plain Flour
3/4 Cups of Castor sugar
3 Tbl melted butter
2 Tbl milk
2 Tsp baking powder
Fresh whipped cream
1. Place the flour, eggs, sugar, butter and milk into an electric mixing bowel and beat on high for 3-4 min
2. Add the baking powder and beat on a low setting just to combine
3. P our intoa greased and lined 20 cm tinand bake in a pre heated oven @ 190 c for25-30 min or until the cake springs back when lightly touched.
4. leave in the tin for 5 min and then turn out on a wire rack to cool.
When both cakes are cold, spread the jam and then the whipped cream and sandwich together, dust with icing sugar and you are done!
