44444444 IMG_7808p First things first, apologies for my kitchen absence of late on the ol' blog. It's been a while since I've experimented with food and have done any home cooking that isn't pasta or Francis Boulle style sandwiches. However, with a little bit of time on my hands I've been keen to sample some more recipes- and explore the charm that lies within home cooking and knowing what's in my food.

Originally adapted (I say adapted- I didn't include the frosting here) from a sponge recipe on the Baking Mad site- it was my first venture into sponge that isn't Victoria Sponge or chocolate- and if I say so myself, it was pretty blooming tasty. At 370 calories a slice (which rumour has it classifies as a 'low calorie' cake) it makes for the perfect partner in crime to a good cuppa and a feet up in the garden. Now without further ado...

You will need:
- 300g Self Raising Flour
- 1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- 300g Stork (soft)
- 125g Silver Spoon Half Spoon Granulated Sugar
- 5 Free Range Eggs (Medium)
- 1 Juice & Zest of a lemon
- 150g Blueberries
IMG_7813p
1. Preheat your oven to 190C (fan ovens are good for 170) and grease and line a baking tin! Sift your flour and baking powder into a bowl.

2. Add the Stork, Half Spoon and eggs and beat until smoother than Danny Zuko and Ryan Gosling on a double date.

3. Fold in the lemon juice and zest, add your blueberries (save a few for decoration if you want to be all arty farty like me too). 77777
4. Spoon the mix into your baking tin and level with a wooden spoon or spatula style item.

5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until firm, risen and cooked through (you can test this using a knife, and it coming out clean). 888888 6. Wait for your sponge to cool and tuck in! Simple huh?

  22. The cake looks great. But I was wondering if you have to add baking powder while you use self raising flour already. Too much baking powder makes the cake flat in my experience.
