Foodie Friday #8 – Summer Berries Sponge Cake

Foodie Friday #8 – Summer Berries Sponge Cake

We have been longing for the summer in the DaisLikeThese household and seeing as the weather outside isn’t helping us at all, I thought we could bring summer to us with this yummy berry sponge cake recipe.

My cheeky 5 year old was not interested in helping today but my biggest boy hasn’t grown out of baking yet and was a willing assistant.

You will need:

  • 125g caster sugar (plus a bit extra for sprinkling)
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 125g self raising flower
  • 2 medium eggs
  • frozen berries – enough to cover the bottom of a baking tin


Preheat the oven to 180c.

To make the sponge, cream the butter and sugar together until it is combined. Beat in the eggs – we used an electric whisk. Fold in the flour. If the mixture is too thick, add a drop of milk.

Next spread your mixed berries over the base of a cake tin or silicone cake mould and sprinkle over some caster sugar. Then spoon your sponge mixture on top of your berries.

Bake for 20-25 mins (until a skewer comes out clean) and TAH DAH:


Our reviews:

Freddie: It is so yummy and sweet and I loved that it was so quick to make so I could get outside to play football! 5/5

Xavi: Yum! I like that we ate it when it was still warm. 5/5

I love how simple this recipe is; I normally have a pack of berries in the freezer and the rest is just stock cupboard stuff. I’m pretty sure it would work well with other fruits.

It tastes sooooo good too!
