Perfect Cake Mix

IMG_1341

 

I had a craving for cake this Sunday and decided to look up as I couldn’t remember the standard mix for Victorian or simple sponge cake. I’ve made these types of cakes since I can remember but I’ve never quite had the perfect fluffy recipe that other people seem to achieve. This time however I think I got lucky trying to make a recipe fit the quantities I had and the cakes were ridiculously fluffy so I will share with you what I did.

 

Ingredients:

200g self raising flour

200g caster sugar

3 medium free range eggs

1tsp of baking powder

200g melted butter

 

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven 180 degrees c
  2. Put your put in a bowl after measuring and put in the microwave for 20-30 seconds until softened
  3. Put everything else in a bowl
  4. Add the butter
  5. Grab an electric hand whisk. Mine is an old fashioned one so not particularly fast
  6. Whisk everything together for 3 minutes until the whole mixture goes white
  7. Spoon into either a greased cat tin or cup cake cases
  8. Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown
  9. Decorate or fill however you see fit
