I have for you busy readers and cooks, a quick and easy cake recipe for this hectic Christmas season. It will help you save time to spend with the family and relieve yourself of all the stress of getting the long “to do” list done. I am talking about a quick mix sponge cake recipe. This is a basic sponge cake recipe and I definitely believe that you can jazz it up a bit to suit your taste and preference. You can put a lemon frosting or a cream cheese frosting.
This quick mix sponge cake reminds me of the sugarless fruit cake I made a while back. I was blown away with its look and taste. I love that cake, and this cake is next in line to be another of my favorite. It is simple; takes as little as 5 minutes to mix; requires few ingredients and the cake is as spongy as the regular sponge cake you may be accustomed to making.
Three ingredients are important in the quick mix sponge cake. They are the self-rising flour, the caster sugar and the eggs. I got this recipe from my mentor, who was very generous in sharing this and many other recipes with me and gave permission to share here as well. Anyway, I have a lot to do as well. This write write-up will brief, but look forward to more Trinilicious recipes in the coming days.
So stay tuned. Here is “Quick Mix Sponge Cake”.
