DIY organic sponge cake recipe

DIY organic vanilla sponge cake or muffin

I have experimented with many sponge cake recipes and this has been the best of all… If you never had luck with baking a cake, look no further than this recipe! I use this as my base recipe and prepared endless variations by preparing different shapes (cakes / muffins / cupcakes), adding different flavours (vanilla pod / grated lemon 🍋 zest / orange 🍊 zest), adding different nuts (almonds/ walnuts / pecan nuts / hazel nuts) and dry fruits (blueberries/ raisins / dates / figs / cherries 🍒)…

Ingredients:

Most of the ingredients are available on amazon or check your local organic store.

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C
  • In sauce pan melt the butter.
  • Put the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla pod in a large bowl and whip until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs one at a time and whip.
  • Sieve the flour and baking powder.
  • Gently add the flour into the prepared whipped purée and mix it with a spoon gently folding in one direction.
  • Pour the batter into greased cake pan of desired shape / muffin / cupcake moulds.
  • Sprinkle few chopped nuts or cacao nibs on it or leave it as is.
  • Bake it at 180C for 40mins or until the toothpick comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool n then slice 🍰 before serving…
