It’s the beginning of the Summer holidays, time for a few weeks of fun with the children, lots of hungry mouths to feed, possibly even a few extra visitors and (always heard at least ten times a day in our house) cries of ‘I’m hungry!’
This simple sponge cake can be knocked up in a few minutes, cooked in 30 and once cooled a thin layer of icing added. It’s our go to quick recipe when we end up with a few extra mouths to feed, always a winner and all store cupboard ingredients. It’s moist enough to eat without icing and you can always just ice half of the cake to suit all tastes.
170g Caster Sugar (granulated is fine if that’s all you have)
170g Margarine or Butter
170g Self Raising Flour
½ teaspoon Baking Powder
1 tablespoon Milk
125g Icing Sugar
Hundreds and Thousands Sprinkles
Preheat the oven to 180c.
This simple sponge is great as elevenses with a cup of tea, a mid afternoon treat or after dinner. It’s also a good fun recipe to get the children involved with as it’s quick and easy and the children can taste the fruits of their labour almost straight away!
