Sponge Cake

It has been a very long time since I bake.For a change I thought of baking a simple cake for Deepavali....that's when sponge cake came to my mind..a very easy yet yummy cake.Sponge cake should be very light and airy and with a melt in the mouth texture. Everyone has their own favorite version of sponge cake but the basic rule is to beat the mixture well to get air into it,There's various version of sponge cake..my way of making sponge cake as follows....normally I prefer to use premix for baking and decorate to my taste but this time I'm not using.

Basic Sponge Cake

Serving Size:8

Ingredient

2 cup all-purpose flour
2 cup caster sugar
11/2 cup unsalted butter
3 large eggs
2tbsp warm water
1/2tsp vanilla essence
2tbsp lemon juice
2tsp baking powder
1/4tsp salt
1/2 lemon zest
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup chopped almonds

Preparation Methods:
Bend sugar and lemon zest until the zest are fine and add them to soften butter and sugar, beat until fluffy.Then add eggs to the mixture one at a time beating well,add water,lemon juice and vanilla essence.
In a another bow;.mix the flour.baking powder and salt. Add half the the flour to the mixture beating well.then add the remaining flour.The longer you beat the batter, the more air bubbles you create. This is what makes the sponge cake recipe light and fluffy.
Pour the batter into 2round cake pan that have been greased with butter and floured, or else your cake with stick to the pan.

Bake at 350°C for 30 minutes.The cake should spring back when touched. To ensure that the cake is done,test the centre with a toothpick,should come out clean. Do not open the oven while the cake is being baked.Let the cake cooled on the rack. Spread the whipping cream even on one of the cake and then place the other onto. Spread with more whipping cream and garnish with chopped almonds
