Classic Sponge Cake

Makes 2 layers Prep Time 28 minutes   Cook Time 25 minutes   Rated:

A classic sponge cake recipe that works is useful in so many ways. Think afternoon teas, birthdays; cue the jam, whipped cream and icing sugar and you are ready to take the cake. Anywhere!

Sponge cakes in the Thermomix run the risk of being quite rubbery, this recipe is perfect if I say so myself, because we don't over beat the batter. You need to be careful with that when making cakes. Thus the Interval or dough setting for such a short time, just to fold in the flour and not activate the gluten. I use this method with a lot of my cakes. I hope you love this one as much as I do!
