Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4 and grease two tins (preferably the same size).
In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one by one mixing as each one is added. Add sugar and mix. Sieve in the flour and fold until the ingredients are all combined. Pour the mixture equally into the two tins and spread it out with a palette knife or a spoon. Place into the oven for 12 -15 mins.
To test that it is thoroughly cooked, poke a skewer into it and it should come out clean. If it isn't cooked, pop it in for some more time.
This is my favourite recipe for simple sponge cake - try adding half tsp baking powder and half a tsp of vanilla extract for extra flavour! Will be converting mine into a 3 tier present style cake (maybe 1 choc sponge) for my sisters birthday! - 09 Feb 2012
