My dad is very sociable and manages to make new friends wherever he goes.

My dad grew up in Vietnam and he became good friends with a baker. This recipe was shown to my dad one day, when the baker friend came over to visit my dad at his home. So, it's a Vietnamese sponge cake recipe from a pro baker, enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 100% eggs (eg. 300 grams, which is about 5 eggs)
  • 70% sugar (eg. 210 grams)
  • 70% plain flour (sifted) (eg. 210 grams)
  • Melted butter (about 1 tablespoon for every 5 eggs)
  • Milk (about 2-3 tablespoons for every 5 eggs)
  • Coconut oil - 1 tablespoon (optional)

Method

1) Beat the eggs and sugar until it goes white and creamy (pull up the beater and the mixture should be thickened and clinging to the beater) - this should take about 15 minutes of beating.
2) Mix the melted butter and milk together in a small bowl.
3) Alternate between adding the flour and butter/milk mixture in small amounts, as you fold it slowly into the eggs/sugar mixture (use a large 'figure 8' gentle motion for the folding process) - for extra flavour, you can also add in 1 tablespoon of melted coconut oil.
4) Bake at 200 degrees celsius for 15 minutes, then reduce to 170 degrees celsius and bake for another 15 minutes.
5) When the cake is ready, you should be able to pierce the centre with a skewer and nothing will stick to the skewer.

Tip: Once the cake has had 15 minutes in the oven, take the cake out of the oven and cut it a few times horizontally and vertically (make sure you cut all the way to the bottom of the tin). Then return it to the oven to cook for another 10-15 minutes. This will make the cake cook faster and also makes the cake surface very pretty, it will resemble a floral shape.
