Light and lovely tasting sponge how it is supposed to be. Fill with cream and jam and dust with icing sugar on top. Or be a little traditional and ice the top and feather it with some colored icing by dragging a skewer through the lines. Either way it won't last long. And I am yet to have this recipe not work for me. I have had it since I was in school.
If you are making this with eggs from your own hens it's best to use eggs that are older than a day old. It makes the eggs beat up better.
Used different ingredients. If u want a richer sponge change using cornflour to using custard powder. Yummy - 05 Feb 2011
