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.

When folding the batter, remember to mix in only one direction.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Sadhana, the cake batter consistency should be of dropping consistency, you can always adjust it by adding or subtracting of the milk in the batter. One more thing, the quality of the plain flour differs from place to place. Do try it again and share your feedback. Happy Cooking!!!

I have tried this receipe but my cake has burnt Bec 30mnt of backing , it''s too much time I think for backing.

Tarla Dalal    This recipe has been tried and tested in our kitchen twice. Oven to oven baking time and temperature differs, so you can try by reducing the baking time to 20 to 25 minutes. Also make sure you have used the exact size of tin as that also leads to a raw or a burnt cake.

Hello Mam, It came out very well. Tried multiple times earlier and nothing worked out. Your recipe is awesome!! Only one concern is it did not get cook in the centre of the cake. So I had to piece them and rebake the uncooked one. Any help on this to do it better next time.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Jasmine, Make sure the temp you bake at is correct and the track where you place the cake is also right, it should be on a middle rack.
