An ideal dessert for birthdays and anniversaries, this homemade cake recipe is popular for its fresh and fluffy base. It’s called “sponge cake” and it’s very easy to make.
Read on to find out how to.
3 cup all purpose flour
2 cup powdered sugar
2 beaten egg
1 cup butter
2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cup milk(optional)
2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring(optional)
It is a simple recipe and you can begin by combining sugar and butter together. Whisk well until light and fluffy. Take the help of a manual whisker or a fork if you do not have one. Even electrical blenders are good. Once done, add the beaten egg and blend well. Beat further so that the mixture gets a light, white appearance.
Sift the flour and gradually add this to the egg mixture. If required add a little milk and mix till the batter is fluffy and soft. Add vanilla flavoring and blend well. Vanilla falvouring is important to camouflage the smell of eggs.
Sprinkle some flour, oil and butter into the pan. It will prevent sticking of the cake to the base. You can also line it with a butter paper. Pour the prepared mixture into the tin and place it in a pressure cooker. Do not add water and ensure the tin does not touch the base.
If you are using an electric oven, cook at 150 degrees-180 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
Insert a knife or a metal skewer into the cake and if it comes out clean, then the cake is done. Remove from the oven/cooker and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Just practice this and you’ll become a master of sponge cakes.
