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:
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!
