    Definitely have to try this recipe. The sponge cake I made in the past turned out flat and a bit eggy. May be the eggs were straight out of the fridge 🙁

    Amazingly easy! I was nervous about using cold eggs so put the temp on 37° when I was beating them. Turned out beautiful, light and fluffy!

    Absolutely perfect Naomi, topped with passionfruit icing. Delicious, much easier than using my good old kenwood chef.
    I would love a good ginger fluff, if your Nana has a recipe for that too.

    This sponge turned out amazing! Just like Nana used to make with custard powder. So light and fluffy. I accidentally left it on reverse after cleaning bowl and it still turned out perfect. I skipped a step by using bought caster sugar but once again was still just right. Thanks so much for this recipe, my Nana would be proud!!  Big Smile
