One Stage sponge Cake

Its weekend ..... for us n...... !!!

I had to bake a cake as the base of the dessert .... would love to share the recipe  of this cake which can be used as a base for most of the cake based dessert...!!!

This cake is called one stage sponge cake adapted from an old book from my mom's collection.


  • melted butter for greasing
  • 1/2 cup jam for filling 
  • icing sugar for decoration

  1. Preheat the oven to 325F/170C,
  2. Grease  and flour two 7 inches sandwich tins or I used 1 large 10 inches tin since I need to use this cake as a base for Alaska pudding.
  3. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl.
  4. Add the butter, sugar ,essence and eggs.
  5. Beat them together  until well mixed, glossy and light.
  6. Pour the mixture into the tins or tin and smooth the surface. 
  7. Place in a preheated oven for 45 minutes or until shrinks away slightly from the sides of the tin and springs back into shape when pressed lightly with a finger.
  8. Remove from the oven, cool in the tin for 2 minutes. Turn out on to a clean towel, then invert the cake on a wire rack to cool.
  9. When cold, sandwich  with jam , In case you r not using for any dessert as a base.
