Im gonna try to show you a step by step photos for making a spong cake… u will need:
– 1 1/4 cup flour (all purpose)
– 1 ts baking powder
– 1 cup sugar
– 7 eggs
– 1 ts vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180°C
Prepare a 10-inch cake pan by placing a parchment paper at the bottom ….
In a small bowl … mix the flour and the baking powder..
In a stand up mixer with the whisk attachment …. add the eggs, sugar and vanilla
Whisk the eggs and sugar until they double in size … like the above photo …
Remove the bowl and now all the mixing is to be done by hand .. so that the eggs do not deflate … add the flour a little at a time .. around 2 to 3 tb at a time ..
Now mix in a round and across motion…meaning … one time go in a circle around the bowl and one time across … do that gently .. remember we dont want to deflate the eggs … repeat by adding the flour until u finish the flour mixture
Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 to 40 mins … until tester inserted comes out clean …
Decorate the way u like …. and enjoy 🙂
