All you need today is a sponge cake.

Tall, wet and fluffy, a homemade sponge cake can change your day. Don't you think so? We leave this recipe for you to check for yourself.


Why buy a biscuit in a box if there is nothing more beautiful and fluffy than a homemade biscuit? It takes a little more time and love, but the result is incomparable. You never did? Be encouraged to prepare one for the mattes this afternoon. Tall, wet and fluffy. You won't regret it.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup neutral oil
  • 2 cups flour 0000
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • Vanilla essence


  1. I beat the eggs with the sugar. You can do it with electric mixer, manual mixer or — if you are brave — a flat fork.
  2. When the mixture is clarified and thickened a little, add the oil and keep whisking.
  3. Finally, I incorporated a little vanilla essence and... I kept whisking, yeah. Patience and affection are the key to any rich recipe. And how fluffy the sponge cake is going to depend, precisely, on the smoothie.
  4. Once everything is together, add a cup of flour along with the baking powder. It is important to sift them first with a sieve. Now we stop whipping: mix with a spatula, with enveloping movements.
  5. Then add the second cup of flour and repeated the mixing procedure.
  6. If you see that the mixture was very thick, you can add milk gradually until the desired consistency is achieved. If you think it was too liquid, do the same thing, but with flour.
  7. Once the mixture has the ideal consistency, it will coat and flour a mold, and turn it inside.
  8. Oven at 180° for about 40 to 50 minutes. It takes time, yes, and you have to be patient. If you open the oven to spy, the sponge cake may deflate and why are we beating so much!
  9. Once at least 40 minutes pass, you can try if it's ready. Oh, how? Puncturing with a knife. If it gets dry, that's it. As soon as it gets warm, you can take it out.

Do you want to Give it a little spin?

  • For a chocolatebiscuit, add to it bitter cocoa powder and a trickle of milk.
  • If your thing is citrus, add lemon or orange zest to it.
