OLD SCHOOL SPONGE CAKE!
This is for all of you who remember school sponge cake and actually liked it.
4oz butter or margarine
4oz sugar (I use soft brown)
3 large eggs
4 oz self raising flour
1 mug of oats
Using a mixing bowl and fork blend the butter and sugar into a paste. Add the eggs and mix well. Add the oats and stir in. Gradually fold in the flour until the mixture becomes thick.
Transfer to a baking tin and place in the centre of the oven, preheated to 170c for 25 to 30 mins. Try not to check it as this might cause the sponge to drop. When it is ready the cake should spring back instantly when pressed gentle in the centre.
Can be served hot with custard or allowed to cool and eaten on its own. You can also add ginger, cocoa powder, nuts or dried fruit to the recipe. Itís always hearty!
