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.

One more important thing to remember is to not over mix or over beat the eggs and to add a little flour with the eggs so as to prevent them from curdling.

We tried this yesterday, first time baking. The steps are clear and easy to follow and the result was delicious - fluffy, soft and moist. Thank you. It was an absolute delight to do this. 2 questions - how long do we pre heat for and is it at the same temp. How do we get the brown crusting on top? Ours just crusted in the side.

Tarla Dalal    You have to pre-heat on the same temperature i.e 180ºC (360ºF) for a minimum of 10 minutes. There are multiple reasons affecting the brown crust. Make sure your oven''s temperature is accurate, the ingredients are of high quality, aluminium pans are best for even baking and place the tin in centre of the oven.
