  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8 inch cake pan and line with a circle of parchment paper.
  2. Beat the margarine and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the margarine mixture before adding the next. Fold in the flour until only small lumps remain; pour into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

So easy. Thought it would be bland, but this is really good. Even my husband, who doesn't like sweets liked this. Don't change a thing.

Followed the ratios but substituted 1/8th of a cup of self raising flour with cocoa powder for a chocolate sponge cake. Excellent - lovely light texture.

This is a perfect recipe! Especially if you need something last minute & don't want to go to the store. Like the previous reviewer, I thought this might be a bit bland, but since I had all the ...

I used unsalted butter instead of margarine. I also added a tsp of vanilla extract. This was perfect for strawberry shortcake.

This was a great base for strawberries and whipped cream. The resulting cake was more of a shortcake than a sponge cake. I followed the directions exactly as written, but found the recipe to be ...
