Basic Sponge Recipe

I tried this Tarla Dalal recipe, new for me, with hesitation. All cakes I have made or tried so far had either butter or oil. This recipe was a pleasant surprise to me as the cake came out very spongy and with a great texture too. Found it a little too sweet for my taste though. So less sugar next time.. This cake is made with only eggs, flour and sugar - no oil, no butter. Will definitely try this out again.

Eggs 3 large
Plain Flour 80 gms
Powdered Sugar 80 to 110 gms
Method: Pre heat oven to 200 degrees C.  Sieve the flour, keep aside. Beat the eggs and sugar till very thick and double in quantity. Fold in the flour very gently with a metal spoon. Pour into a greased and dusted cake tin. Bake for 15 mins(Mine took about 5 mins more) till it passes the  skewer test. Remove from the oven. Loosen sides with a sharp knife, invert over a wire rack. Cool and use as needed.
