IMG_5466We have made sponges before, but they were large sponge cakes.

This time I made some sponge drops, individual sponge cakes.

 

 

 

You will need the basic sponge mixture:

  • 2 eggs
  • 4 oz caster sugar
  • 4 oz sifter self raising flour
  • A few drops of Vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon hot water

Oven  200 C 400 F Gas Mark 6

Whisk the eggs lightly and then whisk in the sugar, vanilla essence and finally the hot water until thick and creamy.  Gently fold in the flour until well combined using a figure of eight movement.IMG_5468

Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.  When cold sandwich together with jam and cream.  -JAB
