  • How to bake a vanilla cake. Quick And Easy Sponge Cake...Yum! - Step 1
    Step 1

    Gather your ingrdients :)
    (You don't need the pasta or Coke Zero...they were just on my counter :/)

    Step 2

    Grab your bowl!! I have only ever used a ceramic of glass bowl for this so my advice would be to stick with either of those options as they conduct heat better.
    Add 4 table spoons of self-raising flour.
    Followed by 4 table spoons of caster sugar.
    If you would like to make your sponge a chocolate sponge, add 2 table spoons of cocoa powder (or hot chocolate powder) here.
    Mix the dry ingrdiants together thoroughly.

    Step 3

    Once your dry ingrediants are mixed, add 3 table spoons of your cooking oil or spread. In the UK, we have a butter brand that makes a cooking spread (Flora) which I find the best to use but I've done it with regular cooking oil before and it was fine.
    The add 3 table spoons of milk.

    Mix!!
    Make sure you mix it all, it has a habit of hiding dry ingrediants at the bottom so really give it a vigerous stir!!
