It was so good to find a recipe that used only three ingredients that were all practically necessities in your pantry. This recipe was unbelievably easy and tasted great! However,if you are going to make this recipe, customise it to serve eight because to serve four it turns out reall small. Read More

I LOVE sponge cake but I've never made one before until now. this one was so easy and so good! I did add some vanilla, though, like others suggested. I will definitely make again. Read More

This recipe turns out great if you do it right. First beat the eggs until they are fluffy, then add slowly the sugar and continue beating until the batter is spungy and fluffy. Sift flour over top of batter and fold it under with one of the beaters. Since I had no self-rising flour, I used regular flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder - sift the b.p. over the flour and mix it under, then sift the flour over the batter. Put batter in an UNGREASED baking pan or just lightly spray the pan, peferably a spring form. I lined the bottom with wax paper then very lightly sprayed the rim with baking spray (just a tad so the batter wouldn't stick). Bake on middle rack for about 15-17 min. It comes out great. Let cake cool in the pan for about 10 min then invert it on a cake rack take off the wax paper and put it right side up on a plate. Read More

it's easy to make but it collasps a bit after cooling. I've tried for more than twice and I'm sure I've got everything correct. It also doesnt look good after baking. Read More
