Why This Sponge Cake Works?

  • Whisking the eggs and sugar until they’re light and fluffy is crucial for a fluffy sponge cake.
  • While melted butter can be used, using oil in this recipe ensures a super moist cake.
  • If you detect an egg smell, you can add a small amount of almond extract along with vanilla.
  • Using an electric beater or a stand mixer makes the job easier, but a hand blender works too.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Whip the eggs until they’re light and fluffy before folding them into the dry ingredients.
  2. Once you add the dry and wet mixture to the whipped eggs, fold gently or mix briefly with a mixer. Be careful not to overmix.
  3. Avoid resting the batter for too long. Bake it as soon as it’s ready.
  4. Be cautious not to overbake the cake, as it may turn dry. Bake it just right!
  5. This cake can be enjoyed as a snack cake or used to make layered cream cakes.

Storage & Serving

Store the cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 to 3 days. If you prefer, you can refrigerate it for up to a week. This versatile cake can be served as a tea cake or used to create delightful layered cakes.
