For the past few years, I’ve actually really enjoyed baking. However there have always been a few things that I have never been able to master from scratch – one of them being a sponge cake. One evening, one of my flat mates, Kayleigh told me how to bake this simple sponge cake and it has soon become a favourite of mine and I’ve made it quite a few times and it always goes down a treat with my flat mates! It’s so quick and easy to make too, which is even better!

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 – 40 minutes

Serves: 10

3 Eggs
6oz Caster Sugar
6oz Self Raising Flour
6oz Butter
1tsp Milk

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas mark 4.

2. Grease and line one 20x20cm/8in baking tin. Use baking paper and lightly coat the sides and base of the tin with butter and apply the baking paper over the butter.

3. Beat together, the eggs, caster sugar, self-raising flour, butter and milk in a large bowl until smooth.

4. Put all of the mixture into the baking tin and put it in the oven for 20-40 minutes.

5. Once the cake it cooked through, let it cool down on a cooling rack.

6. Enjoy! You can make your own icing, but uni students are on a budget and it’s lovely as it is with a hot chocolate or cup of tea!

Bon appetite!
