how to make a vanilla cake from scratch



Hi, today we’re going to make fluffy spongy cake. The Vanilla Sponge Cake is very similar to chiffon cake, and if you follow these steps correctly, your cake will be amazingly delicious. So, without further do, let’s get to the steps and tips of how to make a vanilla cake from scratch.

1) In a large bowl, put 4 large egg whites and beat them with the electric beater and little by little add the 120g of fine sugar while you’re beating. (Beat until the mixture becomes thick, fluffy, and triples in volume.)

2) And now as your egg whites and sugar mixture has done, add 4 large egg yolks into it and whisk with your hand until you mix the yolks with the other mixture.

3) Slightly incorporating the 120g salted plain flour while you’re whisking.

4) In a small bowl, mix 30ml. oil, 40ml. milk, ½ tsp Teaspoon Vanilla Essence and add them into the larger bowl mixture.


5) Keep mixing it with your hand, until you get the whole batter well mixed. (until it’s like broken white).

6) Pour the batter into the pan.

7) In a preheated oven at 150C degree, put the pan on the bottom third rack for 35 minutes. And then increase the temperature to 170C degree and continue baking it for another 3 or 4 minutes.

8) Take it out from the oven, set it aside to cool down and good appetite…!!

And that’s… enjoy!! 🙂

TIP: run a table knife through the batter, to release any large bubbles that might be inside.
