So when I came across this recipe last month, I decided it was time to bite the bullet and give it a go (after all it is just a cake for goodness sake! lol). So I decided that for Hubby's birthday, he would get a sponge cake. With my Mum's words still echoing in my head, I told him to grab a pavlova from the Cheesecake Shop on his way home from work,,,just in case my sponge was inedible!
I needn't have worried. This cake was definitely edible and in fact quite yummy. It probably could have been a little bit lighter and fluffier but I had Stinky helping me make her Dad's cake this year and the mixture did get a little overwhipped, but considering this, the cake was quite light and fluffy. I am going to try making it again,,,,,this time without my helper lol,,,,,and see just how light and fluffy I can get it.
Here is the link for the recipe: Custard Sponge Cake
Go on and give it a go, you won't be sorry!!

Straight out of the oven,,,,to say I was ecstatic was an understatement lol
