The basic of sponge cake that squeeze with easy!
Lets get started –
Go back in the olden days when there were no computers and there was no internet it was really hard to find information for such a simple thing as baking a cake nowadays YouTube is a great source to find good recipes so today we are going to help you and show you how to make a sponge cake.
We are going to beginning with the sponge cake ingredients
Please make a note of anything to begin with
To begin with preheat the oven at 180 degrees centigrade. Pour one teaspoon of melted butter and spread it using your fingers at the bottom of the pan. This will avoid the cake from sticking to the bottom of the pan
Put some flower at the bottom of the pan again, this will save the cake from sticking at the bottom of the pan.
Next crack open 4 eggs, for aroma and for fragrance we will be adding now 6 drops of vanilla essence and beat the hell out of these eggs using an electric whisk. You should beat it for at least five minutes. We are looking for a great consistency. Remember it takes five minutes to get this perfect consistency.
Put the egg mixture aside. Now in another bowl add 100 grams of butter and 250 grams of sugar, and we are going to beat it together. Use a tall bowl so you do not splutter everywhere and make a mess. Once all the sugar is incorporated well into the butter, we will add one cup of all purpose flour followed by 1 teaspoon of baking powder. You can use any baking powder
You sift these 2 ingredients through. What I wanted to add here is that I have seen chefs adding baking powder and baking soda together. You do not need to do this because baking powder already has baking soda in it. We will now add in the egg batter that we have prepared before and mix everything together. It should become soft and smoothy
It does not really matter if you the ingredients together clockwise or anti clockwise with the big wooden hand mixer as if in you are trying to fill air into this batter, because the more airy and fluffy the mixture is, the more the sponge will be soft and tender.
At one time when you are mixing the mixture, the mix will become too hard and thats when we need to add milk, 1/4th cup of milk gradually (around 75 ml), little by little as you get the consistency of batter you require. It will take you approximately around 5 minutes. The mix should become gluey.
Now its time to pour our batter into the mall, shake it while you make it baby. Remember we put all purpose flour and butter at the bottom of the pan before adding the batter.
Give the mix some beating against the counter top and put it in the over at 180 degrees centigrade and after an hour you will receive the below cake.
Let it rest for 15 minutes, flip it in a plate and then eat it.
