Lightest, fluffiest and simplest recipe for a sponge cake. A very light and delicate cake (not in calories though 😛 ) for your small get together and parties. This is the best cake to try if you are a beginner or running short of time to prepare any other cake. This could be your favorite snack for tea/coffee time or the morning breakfast with a warm glass of milk. This is not a traditional sponge cake as I have added my version to it…i.e. Cocoa Powder. 😀 Feel free to skip the cocoa powder to get the traditional vanilla flavored sponge cake.
The celebration of the sweet moment requires something sweet. Isn’t it? 😀 Today we (butter to my toast, cheese to my pizza, aloo to my samosa and many more…ME and my BETTER HALF ) celebrate the best decision we ever made together…To share our food? AHh..yes, but today it’s something else. 😀 It’s our Engagement Anniversary. <3 Looks like the 1st engagement anniversary? Well, it’s our 3rd. It’s crazy I know, But being crazy is beautiful. 🙂
I promise you won’t mind taking those extra calories when you eat this cake. 😉 Hope you will give this a try. Happy baking. 🙂 Have a slice of this sponge cake with your coffee/ tea and enjoy the treat.

Step 1- Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
In a large mixing bowl take softened butter sticks and granulated sugar. With an electric mixer or hand mixer beat until they are well combined and fluffy
Step 2- Mix in the first egg and beat well. Add eggs in steps and beat well after each addition until the mixture is creamy
Step 3- Beat with an electric mixer on high speed. If using a hand mixer beat for at least 4-5mins. Add vanilla essence and milk to the creamy mixture and beat for 1min
Step 4- Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to the mixture and fold well using a spatula. Transfer half of the batter to another bowl and add cocoa powder, gently mix
Step 5- Grease a loaf pan and pour the vanilla batter into the pan and add tutti-frutti then pour the chocolate batter and again add the remaining tutti-frutti over the batter. Stir the batter gently with a fork. Bake for 35-40mins or until the toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let it cool down
Once the cake is cool transfer on a plate and slice into desired size and store in an airtight container. Well, to be honest, don’t worry about the storing thing because you won’t be able to resist your temptation. 😀
