The recipe is the same as the Jam and Coconut Sponge.
8oz Self Raising Flour
8oz soft Butter
2 level teaspoons of baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
a little milk
200g Icing Sugar
a little milk or water
Hundreds and Thousands Sprinkles
heat oven to 180c and line an 8 inch square tin with greaseproof paper
Cream the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Add the whisked eggs one at a time and continue to mix. Mix on high speed for 2 minutes to get lots of air into the mixture. Then add the vanilla essence and gradually add the flour and baking powder gradually. Mix on high for 2 minutes adding a little milk as you go to get a fluffy mixture.
Transfer mixture to the papered tin.
Bake at 180c for 35 – 40 minutes.
Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
For the icing, mix a small splash of milk or water at a time to get a thickish icing. Not too thin, you don’t want it running off the cake. Allow to set before adding the sprinkles.
The cake is also nice with a buttercream icing.
200g icing sugar
100g butter, softened.
Whip the butter until soft and fluffy then add the icing sugar gradually and continue to whip.
