That special day is looming, and you haven’t bought a gift? How can you redeem the situation in a quick and easy way? This one-bowl sponge cake could be the answer.
All you need to do is grease a couple of baking tins, mix two of the dry ingredients in a bowl, add the wet ingredients, and then gently fold in the baking powder. Job done.
Bake the resulting mixture in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, and you’ll have two cakes ready to sandwich together with jam and cream.
