If you are one like me who loves fast, easy cooking or baking without compromising the taste, then this sponge cake recipe is for you. It is easy and fast to make and tastes really good with the cream. This is the first time I made a sponge cake. If I can, you can, too. I have to give the credit to Chef Jeena for her recipe, her tips and encouragement. Here is Jeenas Kitchen Sponge Cake Recipe. More pictures on her website.
Ingredients (for cake)
75g Caster Sugar
75g Plain Flour
Put eggs and sugar in a medium mixing bowl. Whisk it for 5-10 minutes until thick and pale in colour. It will take longer if you whisk it by hand. Sieve the flour and slowly fold into the egg mixture with a spoon. Warning: DO NOT STIR but FOLD it gently into the batter. This is to keep the air bubbles inside the cake mixture.
Pour the mixture into 2 round shallow pans, both greased with butter and sprinkled with flour over the butter. Bake at 180 degrees Celcius for about 12-15 minutes. This depends on the thickness of the cake batter. Test for doneness with a skewer. It should come out clean if cooked.
Remove the cakes from the oven and leave to cool. Make the cream filling below.
Ingredients (filling and top)
2 Tbsp powdered sugar (more if you like it sweeter)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
600ml cream cheese (I use double cream)
Beat the cream, sugar and vanilla with a hand mixture until thick. Sandwich the 2 round cakes with the cream. Spread cream on top of the cake also and decorate with some nice fruits.
This is such a lovely and easy sponge cake. It tastes very good. I am just so happy that my first time in making a sponge cake came out successful. I will definitely bake more cakes.
