Sponge Cake (sweet4ever)

I have always had these 'jinx' when it comes to baking sponge cakes. I don't really know why, though I've followed exactly what the recipe said, but still, it will end up either being heavy or 'very not a sponge cake should look like'. And saddest part is, it will rise up nicely in the oven, and makes my heart fills with great joy and happiness but soon as it comes out of the oven.... pooofffff... it will be like a punctured tyre! Huwaaa... 

But did I give up? No I didn't! Yes, I am a stubborn person. I will keep trying and pray for the best. There are a few times I managed to get it right. Alhamdulillah. And In Sha Allah I will never give up. For this recipe, I have to thank Sweet4ever and my dear sifoo Ummi Kuantan for suggesting this lovely recipe to me. May Allah bless you both.

  3. Hello. Just tried making this cake following your instructions and it came out beautiful. Thank you so much. It was fantastic.

    1. Hi there. Thank you for making my day. Glad to know that it turned out good and to your satisfaction.

  4. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I substituted coconut milk for the milk & oil for the melted butter. I baked it in a 8 x 8 square tin. The batter looks abit too much for the pan so I remove some for 3 cupcakes. It rose to the very top and cool beautifully flat , no sinking in the middle. I will slice in into 2 layers & sandwich it with coconut kaya.
    Thanks again.
