This is the lightest sponge recipe that I have ever cooked.


  • 4 eggs

  • 3/4 cup caster sugar

  • 1 cup custard powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda

  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar


  • 1.

    Pre heat oven 180C to 190C

  • 2.

    Separate the eggs

  • 3.

    Beat egg whites till stiff

  • 4.

    Add sugar

  • 5.

    Beat in yolk (one at a time)

  • 6.

    Add other ingredients

  • 7.

    Bake in a 2litre 8 X 8 X 2 oven proof dish for 30 to 40 mins


I always check if it's cooked, by using a wooden skewer.
