World's Best Vanilla Sponge Cake

Baking the perfect cake might not seem an easy task for most of us. It isn’t that easy either until you have some experience doing it. It’s not only the recipe that will make you capable of baking the perfect cake but the small little details.

Let’s make it easy for you to bake the perfect Vanilla cake with our attention to detail recipe.

Why Should You bake the Cake from Scratch?

Baking a cake from scratch gives you control over the following:

  • The taste
  • The number of calories
  • The quantity of the ingredients
  • The freshness of the contents. Etc.

The packaged mix available makes it faster and less cumbersome to bake the cake. However, baking from scratch can also be made easier and faster with a little bit of planning.

The most critical points of uncomplicating the process of baking a cake and experiencing the joy of baking are having the ingredients ready on hand and proper measurement of the contents. If you can take care of these two points, believe me baking your cake will be a piece of cake for you.

Best Practices for Baking the Perfect Vanilla Sponge Cake

Keep all your ingredients at room temperature – This helps in keeping the cake fluffy and smooth.

Don’t overmix the batter – Overmixing can make clumps of flour appear in your mix. Therefore, avoid mixing once your batter seems smooth.

Bake at low temperature – To keep the cake moist and avoid dryness, the cake must be baked at around 325 F.
