About this recipe: A traditional sponge cake, cooked the traditional way. That is, the cake is baked from a cold oven. Enjoy as is or drizzle over your favourite glaze or icing.
I used this recipe for a cake I made for a friend's son's birthday. I needed a cake that I could carve and sculpt to shape and this fit the bill perfectly, and more than just looking good when finished...it tasted delicious! I got just as many compliments for the cake itself as I did for the 'decorating'. Not a scrap went to waste either because I kept all the bits that got carved away and had many a happy cup of tea whilst picking at the 'leftovers'. Way too tasty to throw even a crumb away. Great recipe, highly recommended! - 08 Jun 2013
