Batter for sponge cake

  1. To make the batter for vanilla sponge cake using eggs recipe | rich vanilla sponge cake | basic vanilla sponge cake | Indian style vanilla sponge cake | place a sieve on the bowl. Measure out all the other ingredients and have them ready to use.
  2. Place the plain flour on the sieve.
  3. Add baking powder. It is a leavening agent used to give the sponge cake rise.
  4. Sift the maida and baking powder together in the deep bowl and keep aside. This will remove any lumps and impurities from the flour before it incorporates into the batter.
  5. In another deep bowl, add butter at room temperature. It is important for all the ingredients to be at room temperature ingredients so they emulsify better.
  6. Cream the butter in a bowl with an electric beater for 1 minute. If you do not have an electric beater then make use of a wire whisk but it would be a tedious task.
  7. Add sugar and cream it with an electric beater for 2 to 3 minutes till it is light and fluffy.
  8. Add one egg. Eggs help in making the sponge cake airy and light.

  13. Add the remaining flour.
  14. Add vanilla essence and pour milk. Look for high-quality vanilla to make good quality vanilla sponge cake. You may need 1 more tbsp of milk.
  15. Fold everything gently using a spatula until well mixed and until no streaks of liquid are seen. Over-folding causes severe deflation of eggs so, just fold enough to combine. You will knock out all the air and land up with a dense sponge cake.
  16. Beat with an electric beater for 30 seconds to mix uniformly. If you feel like the beater is going to be too damaging to the cake mixture, please by all means fold it in by hand. Our batter for vanilla sponge cake with eggs is ready!

How to make vanilla sponge cake

  1. To bake vanilla sponge cake using eggs | rich vanilla sponge cake | basic vanilla sponge cake | Indian style vanilla sponge cake | grease a 175 mm. (7") diameter cake tin with butter or oil.
  2. Line it with parchment paper or aluminium foil. Alternatively, you can brush butter on the inside of the cake tin, then dust it with flour, knocking out the excess to make the surface non-stick.
  3. Pour the vanilla sponge cake batter into it and smoothen the top.
  4. Bake vanilla sponge cake in a preheated oven at 180ºC (360ºF) for 50 minutes. Settings for each oven is different but don't be tempted to open the oven before 40 minutes or else it will fall flat. Start checking the cake about 5-7 minutes before the suggested bake time.Remove from the oven and keep aside to cool slightly. The cake is cooked when it looks well risen and golden on top.
  5. Another test to check if the vanilla sponge cake has cooked well or no is to insert a skewer into the centre of the cake - it should come out clean. You can also bake the vanilla sponge cake in a microwave or pressure cooker, to learn how, check out this Microwave Vanilla Sponge Cake or Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake ( Pressure Cooker).
  6. Gently run a knife around the edge and turn the basic vanilla cake out of the mould and use as required.
  7. For best results leave the cake on the kitchen counter for 6-8 hours before using in a cake or applying the frosting. This will reduce the amount of crumbling when you go ahead to split the cake layer in two horizontally.
