Holiday Reading Challenge Week 2 Day 5 Bonus Activity

Today I did the Bonus activity for the fifth day of the second week, for it I had to say what my favourite sweet/dessert was, google the recipe and then put the recipe onto my blog along with a picture.

My favourite sweet item/dessert is sponge cake, the website that I got the recipe off of is this one. The photo was taken by La-Fontaine, Image free to the public.

  1. Heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  2. Line two 18cm/7in cake tins with baking parchment
  3. Cream the butter and the sugar together until pale. Use an electric hand mixer if you have one.
  4. Beat in the eggs.
  5. Sift over the flour and fold in using a large metal spoon.
  6. The mixture should be of a dropping consistency; if it is not, add a little milk.
  7. Divide the mixture between the cake tins and gently spread out with a spatula.                                                                                   Bake for 20-25 minutes until an inserted skewer comes out clean.                                                                                                   Allow to stand for 5 minutes before turning on to a wire rack to cool.
  8. Sandwich the cakes together with jam, lemon curd or whipped cream and berries or just enjoy on its own.


  1. Kia Ora Alex,

    Yum! I love sponge cake! Thanks for sharing an awesome recipe! I feel like doing some baking tonight! Do you do lots of baking at home? My favourite thing to make is Afghan cookies! I brought a bunch into the office for the whole blogging team and they loved it!

    What is something you enjoy making for others to share with?

    Keep up the great work!

    Cadence :)

  2. Malo E Lelei Alex,
    I've done this task too. I really love the way you've added in a image of what food you were talking about. Next time you should make the words bigger so that we can read it easier. Have you ever baked this before ?
    Nice Work.

  3. Hello Alex
    Well done on completing this summer learning journey activity. I also like cake but my favorite cake is chocolate cake - it tastes delicious! Keep up the amazing work Alex!
