Spongecake

I wanted to make something for my colleague who has so generously gave me something that I needed at the moment. Since I don't have a lot of time to make something elaborated, I baked her some assorted spongecake which will take me less than an hour including baking time. I sprinkled some of them with chocolate chips, some with almond flakes and some I just left it plain.

These are the assorted spongecakes.

See how puffy and plump the spongecake look when they are just out of the oven.

ur spongecake always turn out so nicely and perfect. There is no single crack on the surface, I am wondering how to achieve such result. For me sometimes I got no luck my spongecake surface cracks sometimes (I use SP method).

Btw, may I know did you grease the mould? Is it difficult to unmould?

Hugbear said...

C.B.L., this spongecake recipe also uses spongecake stabliliser. I don't know why but most of the time my spongecake doesn't crack during baking. Maybe it is due to the temp of the oven. Certain part of the oven is hotter.

I also don't grease my moulds. Just line the bottom of the mould with baking paper. When the spongecake is cooked, it comes out of the mould easily.

Do you unmould it after taking out from oven or leave it to cool then unmould

Hugbear said...

Sherreen, I unmould immediately after taking it out of the oven.

Hug bear,

Any reason why the sponge cake with pandan paste turned out hard ? Could it be that this recipe is unsuitable to add pandan paste or cld it be due to some other reasons ? Am asking this becoz i was also thinking of adding pandan paste to this recipe :)

Tibits1, if by adding just 1 tsp of pandan paste it should not make the spongecake hard. Add the pandan paste together with the rest of the ingredients to be mixed. I will try to make one with pandan paste and see how it turns out.

hi Hugbear

Just wanna tell you that i tried adding pandan paste to the sponge cake mixture and the it turned out fine however my sponge cake is no where near yours. I baked some with chocolate chips and almond slices too but mine sink in the middle and the cake seems abit dry. I followed the recipe exactly and make sure i beat the mixture to the right consistency... anywhere, will try it again someday :)

Hugbear said...

Tibits1, if you just sprinkly the chocolate chips and almonds on top before you bake them, it should not sink to the centre. But some of the chocolate chips will sink to the bottom but most of them will still stay on top. Just gently place the almond slices on top and press gently to let it stick to the batter so that after baking, it won't drop off so easily.

Hugbear said...

Tibits1, I forgot to mention that you can up the milk by another 10 to 15ml if you find the cake too dry.

I think those are just a perfect thank you. I don't have a lot of money, but I can cook.. so I give those as gifts quite often. These are just great-- the chocolate chip would be my favorite and I haven't even tasted them.

I like spongecake but have not been successful in making them. I guess my hands are not 'light' enough and I prefer not to use stabiliser if I can help it.
Will give yours a try. :-) They look good.
Thks so much for sharing.

Cheers.
