It’s that time of the year when we celebrate and create memories with our loved ones.

Let’s begin this new year with something sweet.

This is one of my all-time favorite cakes, and very simple to make.

The recipe for the sponge cake is from my patisserie chef who makes the yummiest desserts.

I have tried different sponge cake recipes but this is the one that has won my heart and taste buds too! It is moist and fluffy and hits bang on the sweet spot.

You can use the same base and create different cakes with added ingredients.

Here’s the recipe


  • Sponge Cake
  • 2 eggs
  • 110 gm sugar
  • 110 gm butter
  • 110 gm self-raising flour
