Can anyone suggest the best plain sponge recipe?

I am making a cake for my dad’s 50th and just need a plain, moist sponge recipe to make the base. Can anyone suggest anything as mine always come out like cakes not sponges, cheers.

    this is a generic sponge recipe. The quantities can be altered as long as the ratio remains the same. Flavouring is usually added, I suggest vanilla essence or cocoa powder. This sponge is ideal for “sponge sandwich” cakes, which can be made by either baking two and filling, or baking one then cutting it in half and filling. Typical fillings include jam and butter icing.

    * 8 oz / 225g butter
    * 8 oz / 225g caster sugar
    * 8 oz / 225g self-raising flour
    * 4 eggs

    Preheat oven to 190 degrees C / 375 degrees F. Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat mixture until smooth. Fold in the flour. Pour into a greased tin and bake for 20-30 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack and leave to cool.

    Try the following


    110g/4oz butter or margarine
    110g/4oz caster sugar
    2 medium eggs
    110g/4oz self raising flour

    1. Heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
    2. Line 2x18cm/7in cake tins with baking parchment
    3. Use a hand mixer to cream the butter and the sugar together until pale.
    4. Beat in the eggs.
    5. Sift over the flour and fold in using a large metal spoon. The mixture should be of a dropping consistency – if it isn’t, add a little milk.
    6. Divide the mixture between the cake tins and gently spread out with a spatula.
    7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
    8. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before turning on to a wire rack to cool.

    Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
