Ingredients of Sponge Cake

unsalted butter 160g- softened
160g self-raising flour- sifted
caster sugar 160g
3 large eggs- lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
100ml double cream
125g strawberry jam
1 tbsp icing sugar- for dusting


Pre-heat the oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C. Grease and line 2 x 8 inch (20cm) springform cake tins with nonstick baking paper. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, vanilla extract, and sugar using an electric hand-held whisk until light and fluffy.

Add the lightly beaten egg a tablespoon at a time, beating well between additions, until fully incorporated. Carefully fold the flour in using a large metal spoon and spoon the batter evenly into the two prepared cake tins.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until springy to the touch and a cake tester comes out clean when inserted into the center of the cakes. Remove and allow the tins to cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before turning out and peeling away the nonstick baking paper.

Whip the cream to soft peaks as the cakes cool, then spread the bottom half of the cake with the cream in an even layer. Spread the strawberry jam evenly and carefully on top of the cream. Sandwich the cake with the other half of the cake and transfer it carefully to a serving plate. Dust with the icing sugar and serve.

So, let’s gather our ingredients and get ready to embark on a delightful baking adventure to create the perfect homemade sponge cake. Get ready to savor the heavenly aroma and enjoy the delightful taste of this classic dessert!
