Sponge
« on: June 05, 2018, 01:26:09 am »
INGREDIENTS
4 eggs
3/4 cup caster sugar (small measure)
3/4 cup cornflour
1 tablespoon custard powder
1 dessertspoon plain flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon carb soda

Method
Pre heat the oven to 180 deg.
Sieve the dry ingredients together 3 times
Beat the eggs in  an electric mixer until thick and creamy and the mixture holds its shape
Gradually add the sugar a little at a time.  It should take about 15 - 20 mins to do this.
Lightly fold in the dry ingredients until just combined,   I use a small hand whisk for this.
Pour the mixture into two greased and lined 8" (20cms) round cake tins and bake for 20 - 25 mins.
Turn out onto a teatowel coverd cake rack and allow to cool.   I turn mine over again so the top is showing
Fill with jam and cream or sliced strawberries and cream.
Ice or decorate the top as you wish.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

Thanks for that Margaret. There is nothing like a sponge with some jam and cream, then strawberries if they are in season.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
