We 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.
Place small spoonfuls of the mixture well apart of a baking tray and cook for about 5 minutes.
Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool. When cold sandwich together with jam and cream. -JAB
