Easy Basic Sponge

3 ingredients for a super simple, no fail sponge, and you don’t even need to separate eggs…trust me…it works!

Makes: 1 x 22cm sponge
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
  • 4 large eggs (700g), at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup plain flour

Butter and line a 22cm round cake tin. Beat eggs and sugar with a whisk attachment on high speed for 15 minutes until very light and fluffy. Sift flour onto the surface and fold in gently, using a rubber spatula. Pour into the tin and bake in the centre of the oven at 180°C for 20-25 minutes until golden and centre of cake springs back when touched. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
