Very confused to be asked how many metres I want of a fabric that is clearly marked 60″ width, LOL! Also can’t think in kilos for my own weight. Pamela Newton September 3, 2017 That’s how my grandmother and my mother made their Victoria Sponge cakes, Sarah – and it was actually how I was taught to make it in Home Economics, back in 1967! I wish I still had my mum’s balance scales. Cat Molloy September 3, 2017 Thanks Feed your family for about £20 a week. September 3, 2017 I didn’t want too wet a mixture so I halved the liquids – and I only used 2 cups of the mix . P Cat Molloy September 3, 2017 Don’t mean to sound stupid but how is it that you treble the recipe for bulk but are recommending half the liquid addition. Surely this should be a third??? Sarah Wicks September 3, 2017 Feed your family for about £20 a week. Standard sponge cake recipe is to weigh the eggs, and then have that weight of SR Flour, sugar and butter. One egg usually weighs around 2 ounces/50-60g. My nan had balance scales, and put the eggs on the weights side, and measured the other ingredients against the eggs. Hanna Button September 2, 2017 Thanks Helene Lepley September 2, 2017 Denise Stone how about this for the cafe mum? xx Feed your family for about £20 a week. September 2, 2017 Most sponge recipes are a similar amount of sugar to flour . You can cut it down if you prefer . P Sophie Garbo September 2, 2017 Great gift idea! There does seem to be alot of sugar? Feed your family for about £20 a week.

Feed your family for about £20 a week. September 2, 2017 Of make my in bulk (as I did and trebling the recipe ) it’s the 1 egg if making the exact recipe it’s 2 eggs . P Helen Peters September 2, 2017 Do you reckon it would work adding milk powder to the mix, then add egg/oil/1 cup water when making the cake? Cassandra Harding September 2, 2017 It says to gradually add the hot water- shouldn’t it say warm water? Hanna Button September 2, 2017 Is the “to make” in penny’s summary at the top for a third of the mix (1egg) and the “to make” in the recipe for all (2eggs) thanks 🙂 Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
