Bake With Me: Standard Sponge Cake.

As promised a while ago, this is a recipe for your average sponge cake but in picture form!
1. Preheat your oven to 180°C.
2. Grease and line your baking tin(s).
3. Measure out 6oz of butter and beat until pale.
4. Measure out 6oz of caster sugar and combine with butter.
5. Crack one egg into a mug then it add to the butter mixture and combine. Repeat for the other 2 eggs individually.
6. Measure out 6oz of self-raising flour and add to the mixture.
7. Fold the flour in using a wooden spoon.
8. Stir in 2 tsps of vanilla extract. 
9. Finally, spoon the mixture into your greased and lined tin(s) and bake for around 40 minutes.
10. When your cake has turned golden brown and you suspect it is baked, insert a cake tester (or a fork will do). If it is baked properly, it should be clean when you remove it. If it has cake mixture on it then it is not baked. Put the cake back into the oven straightaway to prevent it sinking.

Allow your cake to cool fully before removing it from the tin. For a chocolate cake, simply use 5oz of self-raising flour and 1oz of cocoa power; for a lemon cake, simply substitute the vanilla extract for lemon extract/juice; for a coloured cake, simply add your desired food colouring after the vanilla extract!
