Recipe | Soft Airy Sponge Cake

This is my go-to recipe whenever I want to make a really light, airy spongy cake

This is the recipe I use for my Patterned Swissrolls


First you want to:

  • Boil half cup water and half cup oil (some times I just add half cup oil to half cup boiled water if I’m lazy) – leave aside to cool


  • Sift 1 and a quarter cups flour and 3 tsp b.powder – set aside



In a bowl add

4 eggs

1 cup castor sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence


Beat the above until white and fluffy


Now add in the flour mixture and the oil/water mixture alternately in three batches, beat between each addition.


Pour into a greased pan / cupcake pans, bake in a preheated oven on 180 til done.


When ready spread apricot jam and sprinkle coconut.

 Jam&coconut sponge cake

This cake/cupcake does not rise like a dome, it stays quite flat. Perfect for decorating


It’s very light and airy.
