About this recipe: This large chocolate sponge cake is light in texture and filled with a buttercream icing. If you like, you can even glaze it with melted chocolate. This is a good sized cake for a birthday celebration.
If I wanted to make this a rectangular cake rather than using a round cake tin what size cake tin should I use for the volume? Thanks Claire x - 05 Nov 2015
I've previously tried several sponge cake recipes which all turned out like hard crusty bricks. Wasn't sure if it was my new fan oven or if I was just rubbish. Jean I take my hat off to you, big big thank you!! One extemely light and fluffy sponge cake now sat in the kitchen! (I split it between two 10inch sandwich tins) Best recipe I've come across and I have now added it to the recipe book I will pass on to my daughter one day. Yippeeee :-) - 19 Apr 2015
