  • sugar

Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    This is one of my standard quick cake recipes, best fresh, especially with good summer fruit. The simple batter is put together in a food processor. It is tasty and has a nice crumb but is not a super light sponge.

    Nigella uses 25 g of cornflour in place of 25g of self raising flour- this gives a light soft fluffy sponge that I haven’t achieved otherwise. Perfect Victoria sandwich ??
