Vanilla and lemon birthday sponge
Celebrating a birthday is wonderful fun, but a home-made, vanilla cream-topped birthday cake is always more fun to enjoy and share when it's a special kind of birthday.
I save this recipe for milestone birthdays, and whilst I made this cake for my 25-yr old cousin, his two year old son and my nine year old nephew loved it.
: 10 minutes
: 30 minutes
: 8 servings
self raising flour
pinch of baking powder/bicarbonate of soda
300ml double cream
3 tblsp lemon juice
Half tsp vanilla paste
Optional: 50g strawberry jam
Add all of the sponge ingredients to a food processor, or (in my case), a blender.
Blend/process until fully combined.
Once smooth pour the sponge mixture into two greased and lined cake tins. Place in the oven for 30 minutes.
Pour the double cream icing sugar, vanilla and lemon juice into a food mixer. Whip on high for 30 seconds.
Remove the sponges from the oven and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
Remove them from the tray and place the 'bottom' layer on the plate/stand you will keep the cake on. Generously spread the whipped cream on top.
Using a spreading knife/butter knife, distribute the cream evenly.
If you would like to add the jam, add it now.
Place the 'top' layer on top and repeat with the rest of the cream.
