Simple And Delicious - Good Old Sponge Cake

Sometime the best recipes and the tried and tested ones that are handed down through generations.
This is one of those recipes.  It is just a simple sponge cake but it is easy to make and always impresses those I serve it to.  I like it plain so that how we mostly have it as it is not too sweet but every so often (or when we have guests) I add jam and cream.

Sponge Cake

3 eggs
Pinch of Salt
3/4 Cup of Castor Sugar
1 Cup Plain Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
50 g Cooled Melted Butter

Grease and line a 20 cm round spring form tin and heat your oven to 190 degrees,
Beat the eggs and salt  then add the sugar and beat until thick and pale.  Sift in the flour and baking powder and fold into the egg mixture.  When the flour is 90% combined fold in the melted butter until just combined.  Pour into your cake tin and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cake springs back in the middle when touched lightly.  Leave in the tin for 10 mins then turn out onto a cooling rack.

Once cool the cake can be cut in half and spread with jam and filled with cream or just eat plain.
