Delicious Sponge Cake

Sponge Cake can is easy to make but very delicious in test. You can prepare sponge cake both with egg or without egg, today I am showing you the one with egg, so vegetarians don’t get disheartened I’ll also post the one without eggs

Ingredients Needed For the Cake:

Eggs - 2
Refined Flour - 100gm
Baking Powder - 1tsp
Powdered Sugar - 125gm
White Butter - 4tbsp
Chopped Almonds, Raisins & Cherries - 1cup

Method of preparing the batter and baking:

Beat the eggs & sugar powder together very well to form a thick batter

Add refined flour & 2 cup hot water to the beaten egg & sugar mixture and mix well so that clumps won’t form

Add melted butter and chopped Dry fruits to the mixture and stir well to form a thick batter

Pour the mixture in baking dish & bake at 400’F for 20min

When the cake starts leaving the sides of the dish and becomes spongy you can understand the cake is done

Let it cool down in room temperature, cut into pieces & serve to your near and dear ones

Should vegetarians post meat recipes so I won’t be disheartened? See how silly it sounds when you turn it around?
