Vanilla Sponge

For most of my recipes I use the same basic sponge recipe and the add as needed i.e cocoa powder or chocolate chips. This recipe is one my Granny gave me years ago and its never let me down.

Its easy to increase the mix too if you need more since its a 2:1 ratio
2oz each of the flour, sugar & margarine per 1 egg

You'll need

4 oz Self Raising Flour
4 oz Caster Sugar
4 oz Margarine
2 large Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

How to make
Pre-heat your oven to 180c and grease a cake tin (or line a muffin tin with cases).

You'll need to cream the butter and sugar together until its light and fluffy.

One at a time, you'll need to add the eggs and allow to mix in between each one. This is where i love my standing mixer as makes life a lot easier. 

Gradually add the flour a little at a time and mix until its all combined nicely.

Pour into the tin (cases) and bake for 15-20 minutes (10-15 minutes for cupcakes) or until the top is golden brown and a knife comes out clean when inserted into the biggest part.

Decorate as you like :)
