Sponge or Victoria sandwich? Properly speaking sponge has no fat in the recipe.

This is the recipe I use. I have tried many and all but this one has failed, even the Fielders recipe has not gone well.

Easy Sponge

4 eggs
6 oz / 175grmsCornflour
6 oz / 175grmsSugar
Heaped teaspoon Baking powder
2 Tablespoons Boiling water.

Using a cake mixer is the easiest way to make this.

Separate Eggs.

Beat whites till stiff.

Add sugar and water mixing in.
Add yolks and fold the dry ingredients.

Bake in two 9inch cake tins. greased and bottoms lined.

Bake 350 F / 180C for 20 mins.

When you remove from oven, drop from knee height square onto floor, this 'shocks' the sponge and it won't sink when cooled. Cool on a cake rack.

NB don't try making these in sponge tins cos they will over flow.once filled this makes a huge deep sponge.

You can use any fruit for the center that you like, I
