Sponge Cake


 



I had tried many different recipes for sponge cake and it was never a success for me. I had lost hope in making this cake and by chance i landed up in a blog "Veena's Art of Cakes". I am a huge fan of baking either it be cakes, cookies or any normal dishes. I always think that what can i bake today in my microwave...Iam that big fan.





Coming back to Veena's blog...Its so amazing to see how she decorates her cakes. Her blog is definitely a school for all who love to bake and is a novice in baking cakes. When i saw the recipe for sponge cake in her blog, i felt it to be very easy to make. I thought, one last time, i will try out this cake.




My daughter's exams were going on, so i kept a bookmark on the recipe to try it out later. She told me that on the day her exams ended, she would like me to bake a special cake for her. So i thought i will bake her this cake. 

On the day her exams ended, i tried out this recipe and to my surprise, it came out excellent, awesome.....I was fed up trying different recipes for a sponge cake, lost hope and when at last it came out absolutely right, i was feeling top of the world - like i had climbed Mount Everest. I think you can understand why i felt so...



How to describe this cake??...mmm.....It was very soft, spongy, melt in mouth and of course tasty. My daughters were very happy and they enjoyed the cake a lot. It was finished within an hour. I had to hide two pieces for my husband to taste. 
 
I thanked Veena a lot when i was enjoying the cake with my family. I will be trying more of her cake recipes in future...So stay tuned guys, u have lots of cake recipes coming up in near future.
