Sponge Shortcake

I got this recipe from an email list a few years ago. I don’t know the original source, though. It is so delicious! We love this sponge cake for strawberry shortcake, but it’s also delicious plain.

Sponge Shortcake

1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup hot milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Combine first three ingredients together.

Beat 2 eggs till thick and lemon colored, about 3 minutes at high speed with a mixer.

Gradually add 1 cup of sugar (or sucanat) beating at medium speed 5 minutes.

By hand, quickly fold dry ingredients into egg mixture.

Add 2 tablespoons butter to 1/2 cup hot milk. Stir into batter with 1 teaspoon vanilla. Blend well.

Pour into paper-lined 8x8x2 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool in pan 15 minutes; remove from pan.

Top with sweetened fruit and whipped cream.

My Notes:

I don’t use paper to line the baking pan, I just spray the pan well with cooking spray, and the cake comes out of the pan fine. This doesn’t make a thick cake, it’s on the thin side. I don’t have a picture, because I’ve never been able to get one, everyone eats it so fast. lol
