Small feather-light cushions of cinnamon sponge cake, split and filled with cream – these are simplicity itself. Demonstrated at the 2011 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival.
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Lightly grease a tray of twelve patty tins* with butter then sift over them a mixture of 1 tbsp flour and 1 tbsp caster sugar. Turn the tin upside down over the sink and tap it to remove the excess.
Have the eggs at room temperature.
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix with a wire whisk or fork to combine them thoroughly.
Warm the mixing bowl and break in the two eggs.
Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs, adding the sugar gradually until the mixture is extremely light and fluffy. Pour in the slightly warmed golden syrup and keep beating for at least another 5 minutes. It sounds like a long time, but long beating is the secret of light sponge cakes. When you lift the beaters out the mixture should fall in ribbons and remain on top of the mixture for several seconds before sinking.
Sift the dry ingredients again, this time onto the egg mixture and fold them in very gently using a large metal spoon, turning the bowl as you go.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared tins and bake for 8–10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and leave to cool for a couple of minutes until the mixture shrinks away from the tins a little.
Turn out carefully, loosening them if necessary with a round-bladed knife.
Cut a slit in the side of each cake with a small serrated knife and spoon or pipe in some whipped cream.
Dust with icing sugar and serve.
You can freeze them quite successfully, cream and all.

Being a frugal spender, and somebody who shops online a lot, I'm keen to hear from others how they go about cutting through all the daily sales & marketing "BS" from retailers to uncover offers which in reality offer good value. I've grown tired of the charade where retailers try to sell us everything under the sun at an apparently "unbeatable" prices. So I've begun seeking out ways to determine where the best deals are online at any given time. Once I've found a seemingly good deal on something, my basic process afterwards to confirm this is as follow: 1. Run a quick google search to price compare it against what other stores are charging (i.e. ignore RRP and focus on the actual market price). 2. If the price looks competitive, try to find ways to get it for even less (i.e. any coupon codes offering discounts available, do I get any extra discount for signing up to the online store's free newsletter, etc). 3. Check shipping rates, as these can vary wildly for online orders between different retailers (often effecting the overall competitiveness of the product). There's also other techniques I use (like where to look for the best offers in the first place), but this is probably a good starting point for now. What about you?
