SPONGE CAKE || SPONGE CAKE WITHOUT FAT || STEP-BY-STEP RECIPE

My entire family has a sweet tooth and that is why baking gives me more joy than any other sort of cooking. Sponge cake is always my go-to dessert option when I need to make something good and easy.

This Sponge Cake also acts as a great base for tons of other cakes and puddings. It’s so easy to make that even rookies can perfect it!


This traditional and basic sponge cake is used in desserts like cassata, zucchetto,gâteau and tiramisù. It can be soaked with your favourite mixture and layered with cream fillings, covered with fondant, or just eaten on its own, sprinkled with powdered sugar. A tried and tested basic sponge cake recipe.

You can use this Cake for Puddings too. Do you love Baking? Visit my Blog Categories Let’s Bake for more Baking Recipes. You will find more recipes like Apple Crumble, Baked Bread Roll, Eggless Donuts and many more.
