Sorry again for not blogging as much as I usually do lately. I’ve been a bit busy with my charity bake sale last weekend and I’ve just recently started a volunteer job at a charity shop in town that means alot to me The British Heart Foundation .
I’m going to share a recipe for a simple sponge cake that you can either keep whole or make into mini versions like I did for the bake sale. They look super cute & the only negative thing I would say about converting the cake into miniature
versions is there is a lot of “waste” unless like me you have some little ganits to eat the crumbs you could use the spare sponge for a trifle or cake pops maybe.
You will need:
100g (4oz) margarine
100g (4oz) Caster sugar
2 medium eggs
100g (4oz) self raising flour
A few drops of vanilla extract
Jam of your choice
100g (4oz) icing sugar + a like extra for dusting
50g (2oz) butter
4. When cooled, cut out rounds using a cookie cutter or even a glass will work well. I managed to get 6 mini cakes from mine. Combine icing sugar & butter to create the buttercream.
5. Cut the little sponges in half and spread one side with jam then fill or pipe with buttercream for a more uniform finish.
