Light and Airy Sponge Cake

Light and Airy Sponge Cake

Wow, this is easy!
Anybody can make this fluffy sponge cake.

Ingredients: 16 cm diameter round cake pan

Granulated sugar
75 g
Cake flour
75 g
Vegetable oil
25 g
Vanilla extract
as needed


1. Separate the eggs into egg whites and yolks. Measure the sugar, and sift the flour on paper.
2. Put the egg whites into a bowl, and whip well with a hand mixer. Add the granulated sugar to make a meringue.
3. Put the egg yolks into a separate bowl, and whip with the hand mixer as well.
4. Add the Step 2 meringue to the Step 3 egg yolks little by little, and mix with the hand mixer. Add vanilla extract.
5. Sprinkle the sifted flour into Step 4, and fold it in with a spatula. Add the vegetable oil, and fold it in as well.
6. Pour into the mold, and bake in a 170 ~ 180℃ oven for about 20 minutes.
7. Insert a bamboo skewer in the middle - if it comes out clean, the cake is done.
8. Add toppings to your liking. I put strawberries and kiwi on top this time.
