Easy Sponge Cake – Basic

This is a very basic technique of making a sponge cake, no backing powder or self-rising flour is needed. You just need a mixer machine to whisk ingredient for a longer time! The eggs & milk should be on room temperature to have a better foamy results which makes our sponge cake fluffy.


00 wheat flour
140g/4.9oz 00 flour
pinch of salt

vegetable oil
10g/0.03 vegetable oil
5 Eggs
Brown sugar
100g/3.5oz Brown sugar
1L of Milk
30g/1.05oz of Milk
a pinch of Vanilla


First line the cake tin with baking parchment. Next turn on the oven to 180C°/356F°.

In the mixer bowl add sugar then milk and oil. Whisk them a bit so the sugar starts to melt. Then add the eggs and vanilla.

1- Mix all the wet ingredients

Turn on the mixer to high speed for 8-10 mins. Even when it becomes completely foamy let it continues for time indicated.

Sieve in small portions flour and gently mix with a whisk then a spatula.

I changed the speed of the video to show you faster but do this much much slower ;D

Pour the mix on the tin and put it in the oven. For the first 5 mins let it be at 190C°/374F°.

The next 25 mins let it stay at 155C°/311F° then lower the temperature to 90C°/194F° for 10 mins . Turn off the oven but let the sponge cake stays for other 10-15 mins

I just removed it form the tin but it was a bit warm, I waited other 10 mins to remove the baking parchments

This is the final result. It’s fluffy, not so dry and it’s a great base for the cakes
