When it comes to baking cakes, practice makes one perfect, and the Rich Vanilla Sponge Cake Using Eggs is an ideal recipe to start off with as it is simple and useful. A vanilla sponge cake always comes in handy, as it is subtle in nature, allowing the other ingredients in the final creation – be it a fruity sauce, an elaborate decoration, or even an Indian mithai – to stand out and take the bow. Remember that when baking cakes, everything matters, right from how you fold the batter to the temperature of the oven. So, follow the instructions carefully. When folding the batter, remember to mix in only one direction.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Linet, Butter will always give it a better taste but you can surely try with oil as well.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Ruksana, We would suggest to not make such a big sponge as the size of the tin and baking temp will vary which is v important

Easy to make and very yummy. I used pineapple essence since I did not have vanilla essence at home. I made pineapple butter icing on the top of this cake which really added more taste to this cake. Tarla, Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe. Foodies - Use the exact measurement for ingredients. This cake receipe batter is little thick compared to other recipes.
