Sponge Cake Ingredients:
- 200g Raw caster sugar
- 220g Eggs (around 4 eggs)
- 140g Nodo Not-So Plain Flour
- ½ tbs Baking powder
- 45g Butter, melted and cooled
- Whipped cream (Optional)
- Strawberries, chopped (Optional)
- Strawberry jam (Optional)
- Icing sugar (Optional)
Preheat oven to 180ºC fan-forced.
Grease an 8-inch round cake tin on all surfaces. Line only the base with greaseproof paper.
Place sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl. Using a whisk attachment, whisk mixture on highest speed for 10 minutes or until tripled in size.
Meanwhile, melt butter in a microwave or on a stovetop. Set aside to cool.
Gently fold through the Nodo plain flour and baking powder, half at a time.
Gently fold through the melted butter until well combined.
Place mixture in prepared cake tin.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Once baked, let cool completely before taking out of the tin.
- Decorate with your choice of toppings. We cut ours in half and filled with whipped cream, fresh strawberries and strawberry jam and finished with a dusting of icing sugar.
