Magical 4 Ingredient British Sponge Cake

The best sponge cake recipe you will ever try is made with love and only 4 ingredients.   The aroma of this British sponge cake recipe trailed my mum’s kitchen since I was a little boy. She was a stay-at-home mum for the most part unless she was helping my dad with our business and always had a cake baked inside her cake tin. (she still uses the same tin, no kidding.) Most often it was a sponge cake to enjoy after tea with a lovely cup of coffee or tea. Other times we’d sneak a piece just because the sponge cake was so light and fluffy it was hard to resist. A sponge cake is one of the easiest cakes you can make and a great cake for baking beginners and inexpensive to make. British sponge cake has 4 ingredients and that’s all you need to make this delicious cake that everyone will rave about. Once you dress up your fluffy sponge cake with accessories you’ll see that you’re working with a blank pallet that you can bring to life. This makes the sponge cake the perfect birthday, anniversary, baptism, graduation or even wedding cake for your special day. […]
